Victorian Cookery: Eggs Stewed with Cheese

        Welcome to my new Victorian Cookery series, in which I'm trying out recipes from times long gone by, found in women's magazines like Godey's Lady's Book or Victorian cookery books like Isabella Beeton's. First comes a very quick and easy recipe from an August 1864 issue of Godey's - if I understand correctly, it was meant as a little snack, but beware, this meal is very filling - I made only 2 eggs instead of 3, and despite being rather hungry could not finish it.


       And here is what it looks like prepared:


       Taste-wise, this dish is rather good, especially if you like rich foods; what do you think, was this meant for somebody who labours hard, considering how fatty it is?






Love, RosaJ
