1 1/2 teaspoons sage
1 cup diced celery
3 tablespoons minced onions
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
2 pounds flounder fillets
1 1/2 cups light cream
1/2 cup sherry
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
2 sprigs fresh parsley, for garnish
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Spread stuffing on each fillet, roll up, and secure with toothpicks. Stand fillets up in a 2 quart casserole.
Stir together cream and sherry in a small bowl. Pour over fillets. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve stuffed fillets with cream sauce. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg, place a pat of butter or margarine on each fillet, and garnish with parsley.
If the sauce needs thickening, pour it into a small saucepan. Stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons flour, and cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
