Delaware Baked Eggs

Posted by Olga 8/10/02 2:49:39 pm

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup grated sharp cheese
4 eggs
4 dashes hot pepper sauce
4 dashes Worcestershire
1/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup light cream
Buttered toast

Put butter into a baking dish that is at least 2 inches deep. Warm dish long enough to melt butter. Cool dish so eggs will not set but butter will remain liquid. Sprinkle one half of cheese over butter. Break eggs into 4 separate spaces, far enough apart so they will not run into each other. Put dashes of hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire in center of each egg yolk. Spoon ketchup over yolks. Pour in cream. Sprinkle remaining cheese over eggs. Bake in moderate oven 350 degrees F until eggs are set.

Serve each egg on a slice of buttered toast and spoon the pan sauces over it.

Makes 4 servings.
