One of FDR’s favorite foods was his mother Sara Delano Roosevelt’s Kedgeree, a hearty rice and fish dish. In case you want to try it yourself at home, here is the recipe. Enjoy this little taste of history!
1 cup cooked flaked fish or crab, lobster, or canned fish
1 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup cream or fish stock
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 hard cooked eggs
Mix the fish with the rice. Moisten with the cream and saute lightly in butter. Do not press down–dish must be light and fluffy. Season with salt and pepper. Add the eggs, cut in quarters, sliced, or chopped. Heat thoroughly. Serve with extra grating of freshly ground pepper or dash of Worcestershire.
