 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Octopus meat
    2                    Eggs
    2       ts           Dill weed
    2       tb           Finely chopped onion
      1/2   c            Breadcrumbs
      1/4   c            Melted butter
                         -OR- margarine
 
   Boil fresh octopus for at least 10 minutes. Remove
   skin. The skin and suckers will “slip” off the
   tentacles when it is cooked. Prepare cooked octopus
   for tidbits by grinding as you would hamburger. Once
   is sufficient. No further tenderizing is necessary.
   Mix ingre- dients together. Form into balls no larger
   than 1 in diameter. Roll in bread crumbs to coat. Pan
   fry in butter or margarine until golden brown. Garnish
   with lemon, lime, tomatoes or lettuce.
   
   These delicious tidbits are wonderful for fancy
   buffets, freeze well, and make a hit at any and every
   party. Great for the gourmet, and good for home. It is
   difficult to say how many this serves, as some people
   love it and gobble them all up, and others only eat a
   few if they know what they are eating. For a main
   meal, it should serve four.
