Eggs la Bonne Femme


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Spanish onion
  • 1 ounce of butter
  • 1 teaspoonful of vinegar
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of breadcrumbs
  • pepper and salt to taste


Peel and slice the onion, and fry it brown in the butter; add the vinegar and seasoning when done. Spread the onion on a buttered dish, break the eggs over them, dust these with pepper and salt, and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Place a few bits of butter on the top, and bake until the eggs are set, which will only take a few minutes.
