by a cheese flavor, vv^hich can be added just before serv-
ing. Grate the desired quantity over the omelet just

ScrambUuf E^C^S.-A common fault in
scrambling eggs is that they are cooked so hard that
they are tough and indigestible. If a tablespoonful of
m'ik or water for each egg, and the mixture only cooked
until creamy, stirring meanwhile, the result will be a
dish both appetizing and wholesome. Serve with but-
tered toast. Garnished with a sprinkling of fried or
boiled ha n ( Run through a meat chopper) makes a

nice variation. — Mrs. Ed^ar N. BIak«,

hL^% lielisi^.— Use number of eggs sufficient
for the people you are to serve. For each egg allow
one tablespoonful dry bread crumbs and two talbespoons-
ful rich m.iik. Pour milk over crumbs and when they
are soft, add the eggs, not beaten; then with a silver
fork mix lightly. Have frying pan ready with hot but-
ter, just enough to keep eggs from sticking; pour the
mixture in and fry until eggs are set. Stir with fork
as in scrambled eggs. If you like, the eggs may be
beaten before adding to the crumbs then fry like an

omelet. — Mrs l^d*,a«' ^- RFako.
