Required: Three eggs.

A small lump of butter. About six ounces of grated cheese. Salt and pepper. (Sufficient for three persons.)

Well batter three scallop-shells, shake into each a thick layer of grated cheese, carefully break an egg into each shell, sprinkle each egg with a little salt and pepper, then cover entirely with grated cheese. Put the shells on a baking-tin in the oven and bake until the cheese is nicely browned and the eggs lightly set. Serve them at once.

N.B. - Parmesan cheese has the best flavour when cooked, but any stale cheese can be used.
