Eggs 'Alla Sciarmante'


Hard boil four eggs; cut into several pieces. Then prepare the following:


  • 1 heaping tablespoon of sugar
  • rind of 1/4 of lemon
  • 1 scant cup of water
  • cinnamon
  • 1 cup of milk or cream
  • yolks of 4 eggs
  • lemon juice


Boil down to a syrup sugar, rind of lemon, water, and a little piece of cinnamon.

Then remove the lemon-rind and the cinnamon, and add milk or cream.

When heated through, take off of fire, and add the yolks, beating well together.

Then pour the sauce over the hard-boiled eggs in a shallow baking-dish, put it in a very moderate oven, and bake.

Before serving squeeze on a little lemon juice and garnish with squares of fried bread.
