Eggs in a Cloak

(6 servings)

  • 6 eggs - separated
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley - freshly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Using half of the butter, grease a 10-inch round baking dish. Slip the yolks into the buttered baking dish; tilt the dish from side to side so that they spread evenly over the bottom. Dot the yolks with the remainder of the butter.

Beat the egg whites until they just begin to stand in peaks. Add the parsley, salt and pepper and beat for 1 second longer.

Using a rubber spoon, gently spread the egg white mixture over the yolks. Place in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes or until the whites are a delicate golden brown. Serve at once, piping hot. Serves 6, allowing 1 egg per person. Serve with toast or hot buttered muffins.

Where are the yolks? Oh... cloaked under the delicate golden brown whites. This recipe is from the chapter "Eggs For Breakfast" in The Fabulous Egg Cookbook.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
