Phantom Eggs

(5 servings)

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 can undiluted tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup buttered bread crumbs (melt 2 Tablespoons of butter and mix crumbs into the butter until they are covered)
Place the eggs in a sauce pan and cover with cold water. When the water comes to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Let the hard-boiled eggs stand in cold water for a few minutes, and peel them. Slice each into 5 or 6 pieces.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Rub the bottom and sides of a baking dish with softened butter or margarine. Cover the bottom of the dish with egg slices. Spoon tomato soup over the egg slices. Make layers of egg slices covered with soup until you have used up the eggs. Spread buttered bread crumbs on the top of the dish. Bake for 20 minutes.
