FEBRUARY 19 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN JEANETTE BEYER TELLS READERS HOW TO START DAY RIGHT GOOD BREAKFAST IS PRESCRIPTION Globe-Gazette Food Expert Has Many Interesting Menus and Recipes for First Meal of Household. The man who tells us over the radio that he "rolls out of bed In'the morning with a great big smile" probably Is looking forward to a great big breakfast, too, something like the ones which Jeanette Beyer, Globe- Gazette food expert, describes In her Table Talk this week. Breakfast needn't be toast and coffee externally and life will seem a little less monotonous with a varied morning menu. Hurray For Breakfast! __ Petite dejeuner may have charms for the continental appetite, but milk coffee with a roll has no appeal for me at 7 a. m. Talk if you will about poor American food, but give me an American breakfast-the best meal of the day--every day! I suppose we borrow from the English, from the Canadians, from the farmer, the lumber jack--well from all good honest industrious folk, who like to start the day with a savory taate in the mouth and complete satisfaction inside. Try to picture a more ideal combination than to arise from a long night's sleep, rested and hungry. Bathed, dressed, imagine yourself sitting down to any one of the delightful breakfasts described below. A'ot For Everyone, I know there are night owls, and late morning sleepers, who cannot enjoy such pleasures daily--except perhaps on Sundays and holidays when a real breakfast will taste even sweeter for its rarity. Then breakfast becomes a sort of "brunch" breakfast-lunch), and the cook of the household will need to add only one other meal to complete the day. Though you may agree with P. Morton Shand that breakfast shluld be eaten in strict solitude, may I suggest that choosing a leisurely morning such as Sunday or George Washington's birthday, breakfast makes ., a wonderful entertaining meal. With carefully selected guests, and carefully selected, well prepared and beautifully served food, you can be assured of a hap- ~py Inspiring morning. Because it is an informal meal, what a good time -"Mothers !

Classic breakfasts are always ac- :eptable, but if you want to be un usual, breakfasts offer splendid opportunities. Breakfast dishes from readers were scarce this week and I am disappointed. Don't you believe :n them? Though the quantity IB lacking, the quality is all here. Women who don't care to fry their tsroustades may toast them slowly in the oven until they are golden and crispy. Here is the first recipe, from Mrs. Albert Stone, and I've made a breakfast menu to go along Orange Juice Poached Egg Croustades Plum Butter Pear Marmalade Toast Coffee Poached Egg Croustadcs 5 bread crouatades 5 .eggs 1 package cheese Vi cup milk Salt and pepper. Make from day old bread. Cut slices Hi inches thick trim the crust, scoop out center 01 each piece and fry in deep fat untl golden brown. Drain on paper Paach eggs in water to which a teaspoon of salt and juice of a lemon have been added. When whites an firm place one egg In center o each croustade and serve with i» sauce made from 6heese and milk cooked slowly in a double boiler til cheese is melted and season to taste Garnish with parsley. Mrs. Cecilia Cox sends an unusu al egg dish which can be preparec the night before. If you haven't thi anchovy essence, don't despair, th dish Is good without it. Halves of Grapefruit Lucanian Eggs Baking Powder Biscuit) Strawberry Preserves Coffee Lucanian Eggs . Cut 5 hardboiled eighths lengthwise. Add 1 cup of eookec. macaroni, V 2 cup grated cheese and 1% cups of white sauce. Season with salt, paprika, onion juice and anchovy essence. Turn into a buttered baking dish, cover with buttered crumbs and set Into the oven long enough to brown the crumbs. Sausage is always enjoyed' for STOP BAD BREATH Thousands of people afflicted with had breath find quick relief through Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets. The pleasant, sugar-coated tablets are taken for bad breath by all who know. Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets act gently but firmly on the bowels and liver, stimulating them to natural action, clearing- the blood and gently purifying the entire system. They do that which dangerous calomel does without any of the bad after effects. Olive Tablets brings no griping pain or any disagreeable effects. Dr. F. M. Edwards discovered the formula after 20 years of practice among patients afflicted with bowel and liver complaint, with the attendant bad breath. Olive Tablets are purely a vegetable compound; you will know them by their olive color. Take nightly for a week and note the effect. 15c, 30c, 60c. winter morning breakfasts. Here s a breakfast dish complete, fruit, meat, egg. Every day Morning Apples Wholewheat Toast Coffee Everyday Morning Apples Apples Sausage meat Eggs Place cored peeled apples in bak- ng dish or skillet. Force sausage meat into the core holes and place a small mound firmly on top each apple. Bake for about 40 minutes at 375 degrees F or until both sausages and apple are done. Serve on a warm plate topping the sausage with an egg poached- carefully in milk.--Mrs. O. P. Baxter. Eggs are always a happy breakfast selection. Unfortunately this la not the season when they are cheapest. Nevertheless they are an important food, and, and we can re- lolce that the government Is about :o provide 15,000,000 dozen eggs for Jie people who have not the means for getting food themselves. By the end of January these will have been distributed free to the needy people of this broad land. This is certainly good news for the children, for along with milk eggs are among the best all-round foods. Even the family with the smallest food budget should try to get a few eggs every week for the children, advises the Federal Bureau of Home Economics. As an egg dish for grown-ups with rye bread toast and stewed apples they suggest Corn Fritters 1% cups sifted soft wheat flour 2 tsp. baking bowdcr "Ji tsp. Halt 1 cup liquid, either juice from canned com or milk, or the two mixed 1 egg 1 cup drained canned corn 1 tbsp. melted fat Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix the juice from the canned com, or milk, or whatever liquid Is used, the egfr after It has been beaten slightly, and the canned corn. Stir this liquid mixture grad- ualy Into the dry ingredients. Add the .melted fat. If the corn is very moist, even after the liouid has been drained from it, morn flour may be needed. Dried corn which has been soaked and cooked until tender may also be used. Fry the corn fritters in deep fat or, if preferred. In a skillet in shallow fat. In either case drop the m'xture bv spoonfuls Into the fat and fry rather slowlv. The fritters need time to cook-through to the center before the outside becomes too brown. Drain the fritters on absorbent paper and serve hot. If you are middle western, or southern or even a New Enjrlander, I'm sure cornmeal appears in your favorite breakfasts. Unfortunately good old fashioned cornmeal la hard t o ' buv. "Old process" or "water- ground" meal was originally ground In mills run by water power. But "watergrnund" meal Is ground he- twoen millstones and in rrmnv places today there are mills which turn out stone-ground meal by steam or electric power. This is so much softer find richer In food values than the "new process," because the new process takes out nearly all of tho skin and the germ of the grain, which is left in the meal in the old process. Maybe as hasty-pudding, or fried mush, cornmoel comes to breakfast. But may we suggest scrapple and spoon bread as two more decillous veslons? 'Scrap pi o ' Select 3 pounds of bony pieces of pork. Simmer in 3 quarts of water until the meat drops from the bone. Strain off th- brnth. remove the bone, taking care to get out all the tiny pieces, and chop the meat ftne. There should be about 2 cniarts of broth, and if necessary add water to make this ouantity. Bring the broth to the boiling point, slowly add 2 cups of cornmeal, cook the mixture until it is thick muah and stir almost constantly. Add the chopped meat, snlt and any other seasoning desired, such an onion juice, sage, and thyme. Pour the hot scrapple into oblong enamelware pans which have been rinsed with cold water. Let stand until cold and firm, slice, and brown In a hot skillet. If the scrapple is ri^h with fat, no more fat is needed f/ .' frying, Salt Pork Snoon Bread. Chop or grind 'i pound salt pork.
