Scottish Skirlie Bread



6 servings



1/3 cup bacon drippings
2 cups chopped onions
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sage


Melt the bacon drippings in a frying pan; add onions and cook until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, beat together milk and egg in a mixing bowl; stir in browned onions. Combine oats, flour, baking powder, and salt. Crush sage and mix into oats. Stir oats into onion mixture, mixing just until well moistened. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan with bacon drippings. Pour batter into the pan and bake in a moderately hot oven, 400 F., for 25 to 30 minutes, or until done and brown on top. Serve warm. Makes about 6 servings.
