Uova in fili (Egg Canapes)


  • 2 ounces of butter
  • 3 large fresh mushrooms cut into slices
  • 1 onion cut up
  • 1 spoonful of flour
  • 1/4 glass of Chablis
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 spoonful of either fish or meat stock
  • eggs


Put into a saucepan butter, mushrooms, and onion, fry them slightly, and when the onion begins to colour add flour, Chablis, salt and pepper, and occasionally add fish or meat stock. Let this simmer for half an hour, so as to reduce it to a thick sauce. Then boil as many eggs as you want hard; take out the yolks, but keep them whole. Cut up the whites into slices, and add them to the above sauce, pour the sauce into a dish, and on the top of it place the whole yolks of egg, each on a crouton of bread.
