Cooked chicken, or veal,

Butter, 1 tablespoon,

Flour, 2 tablespoons,

Milk, 1 cup,

Eggs, 2,

Sherry, 1 wine-glass,

Cayenne, a pinch.

Rub the flour and butter together, and stir them into a cup of milk that has been made very hot in the cooking-pan. When nicely blended add the eggs, beaten, and at once put in the chicken, or veal, which has been cut in dice. This only needs to get hot in the sauce, as it is sufficiently cooked already.

At the last add a generous wine-glass of sherry and a dash of Cayenne pepper.
