Eggs in a Cloak

Eggs in a Cloak

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Five minutes at 350 just doesn't seem long enough to cook the yolks! Is the time a misprint? By the way, I have the book - there are some good recipes in it.

When I made it, some of the yolk broke anyways, and my boyfriend doesn't like whole yolks, so I just broke all of them to fill the bottom of the pan.

This sounds intriguing, but, knowing me, a really good way to waste six eggs and a lot of effort because I wouldn't be able to tell how cooked the whites were in just 5 min, down around the yolks. Maybe a clear glass baking dish would help? What's the texture of the yolks in this dish, I wonder?
