Like dew on the mountain, Like foam on the river.
Take four whites of eggs, hard boiled and chopped fine. Mix thoroughly with two tablespoons of boiled white rice, each grain dry and separate. Put into a saucepan with a bit of butter, and some finely chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly, and when quite hot, serve on buttered toast.
Take some poached whites, not too hard, which have been poached in a poacher, and dredge with black pepper. Dip the white first in cream or lightly butter it. Then wrap it up in very thin light puff paste, and bake.
Make the pastry first, and line some patty tins. Mix a spoonful of butter, one of chopped spring onions, one of fried bread crumbs, some chopped parsley, salt and pepper. Put a layer of this mixture in the bottom of each patty tin; then break white of egg into each. Put a little chili vinegar and parsley on top of each white, and cook gently in the oven. A slow oven is the best.

Break whites of eggs into buttered baking dish, or into ramequins, and cook them in a hot oven until they begin to turn white around the edge. Cover with the mixture of crumbs, cheese, and seasonings. Brown in a very hot oven. In preparing this dish, it is essential that the oven be very hot or the egg will be too much cooked by the time the cheese is brown. To avoid this, cover the eggs with white sauce before adding the crumbs.
The food value of this dish is very close to that of a pound of beef of average composition.
For those who are particularly fond of cheese the amount of cheese in this recipe may be very much increased, thus making a much more nourishing dish. Or the amount may be reduced so as to give hardly more than a suggestion of the flavor of cheese.
