E. V. Case, Elmhurst. Take three eggs, beat the whites and yolks separately; to the yolks after they are beaten, add a half teaspoon of salt and a teacup of rich cream, in which a heaping tea-spoon of flour has been smoothly rubbed; lastly stir in the whites which have been beaten as for cake; have ready a spider in which has been melted a tablespoon of lard, and which is as hot as can be and not be burned; pour in the mixture and let it stand till it is a rich brown on the bottom.
M. One cup boiling milk with one tablespoon of butter melted in it; pour this on one cup of bread crumbs (the bread must be light); add salt, pepper and the yolks of six eggs well beaten; mix thoroughly; and lastly, add the six whites cut to a stiff froth; mix lightly and fry with hot butter; this will make two; when almost done, turn together in shape of half moon.
E. M. Walker.
Four eggs well beaten up with a little pepper, salt, nutmeg, chopped parsley and chives ; one-half pint of cream (or milk); half fill little well buttered cups or moulds and set them in boiling water; boil for ten minutes, then turn out. They may be served with a sauce.
Mrs. Edward Ely. Six eggs, two tablespoons of flour, a little salt, one cup of milk. Take a little of the milk, and stir the flour into it; add the rest of the milk, and the yolks of the eggs; then beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth, and pour into the flour, milk and yolks; put a piece of butter the size of a small egg into an iron spider, and let it get hot, but not so the butter will burn; then pour the mixture in and put in a moderate oven to bake in the spider. It takes about ten minutes to bake. Then slip a knife under and loosen, and slip off on a large plate or platter.
M. A. T.
Seven eggs beaten separately; add the yolks, one-half teacup sweet milk or cream, a tablespoon of flour, salt and pepper; after beating them very light, mix well; lastly, add the whites cut to a stiff froth; mix very lightly and only a little. Fry with butter on a quick fire. When brown, fold together and serve immediately. This will make two omelets.
