Asparagus and Egg on Toast

25 large heads of asparagus. 1 gill tomato sauce Nos. 178, 179. 4 eggs. 1 ounce of butter. Pepper and salt to taste. 6 rounds of toasted bread.

Dissolve one ounce of butter in a small stewpan, add the eggs beaten, and a little pepper and salt. Stir over a gentle heat until the eggs thicken, but do not allow to boil. In the meanwhile, boil the asparagus, drain it well, cut the very tender portion into small pieces, and stir them in with the eggs. Have ready the rounds of toast nicely buttered, and spread the mixture very thickly on them. Pour a little of the tomato juice over each round just before serving.

Vermicelli and Cheese Fritters

Another way.

4 ounces vermicelli. 4 ounces grated cheese. 1 pint milk. ½ teaspoon salt. ¼ teaspoon pepper. Egg and bread crumbs.

Break up the vermicelli, and place it with three ounces of the cheese well mixed together in a pie-dish; add seasoning and milk, and bake for about half an hour, stirring once or twice at the beginning. When cold and firm, cut into squares or fancy shapes, roll in egg and bread crumbs (with which one ounce of cheese should be mixed), and fry in boiling oil until crisp and brown.
