To make a white Fricassy of Eggs


  • eggs
  • white gravy
  • 2 or 3 spoonfuls of cream
  • 1 spoonful of white wine
  • juice of lemon
  • shred parsley
  • salt


Take ten or twelve eggs, boil them hard and pill them, put them in a stew-pan with a little white gravy; take the yolks of two or three eggs, beat them very well, and put to them the cream, white wine, a little juice of lemon, shred parsley, and salt to your taste; shake altogether over the stove till it be as thick as cream, but don't let it boil; take your eggs and lay one part whole on the dish, the rest cut in halves and quarters, and lay them round your dish; you must not cut them till you lay them on the dish. Garnish your dish with sippets, and serve it up.
