My grandmother, Florence Bowden Milne left us a spiral bound notebook, written entirely by hand. The notebook was begun about the time of her marriage to my grandfather, Joseph A. Milne in 1906. In it she left a treasure chest of family information and wonderful clues to life back in the early 1900's.
TODAY'S FEATURED RECIPE
EGGS BAKED IN GRAVY
|The excerpt from my grandmother's journal - in her handwriting|
Here is a transcription of the recipe.
Take chicken gravy, making it thin and season well. Put it into a baking dish and drop into it as many eggs as will cover the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top and bake in a hot oven. Serve on sliced toast.
I’ve personally never heard of this dish, nor have I tried this recipe. However, it does sound interesting. Maybe I’ll give this recipe a try. Wonder if my husband will like it? What do you think? Would you try it?
So many of the things written by my grandmother, in this notebook, are interesting and unusual. I’m sure glad I have this memory from her.
