Eggs 'Alla Milanese'


Hard boil four eggs, cut them in four pieces each, put them in a platter, and pour over them the following sauce:

Cream of Lemon Sauce


  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 1 tablespoon of starch
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of powered sugar
  • 1 cup of milk
  • pinch of salt
  • grated lemon-rind
  • 2 yolks of eggs


Take cold water, and pour one-half of it in a bowl with starch, stir well until starch is dissolved.

Pour the other one-half onto powered sugar and boil for a few moments until sugar is thoroughly dissolved.

Allow it to cool, and then add the starch, and milk, salt, a little grated lemon-rind, and yolks of eggs.

Mix all thoroughly, then strain through a sieve, then put on the stove again, and over a moderate fire, stir it constantly, always in the same direction, until it has assumed the thickness you desire.
