Eggs 'Alla Piacentina'


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 rounded tablespoon of melted butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • very thin slices of cheese, Parmesan or Gruyere


Take the whites of the eggs, and beat until stiff. Then add the yolks and melted butter, and a little salt and pepper. Take a small baking-dish, butter it well, and put in the bottom a layer or two of cheese. Put into the oven for a few moments until thoroughly heated, then pour on the whites of eggs mixed with the other ingredients, put back in the oven, and serve when the eggs are a golden brown.
