This recipe comes from a little book called ABC Jiffy Cookery. I've had it for over 50 years. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet. I'm putting them here so I can find them easier.

Very good. I used Canadian bacon and we really enjoyed these. Also liked your tip on cracked eggs and plan to try it next time I get the opportunity. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

  2. Quick Hollandaise sauce:.
  3. Melt 1/2 pound butter over hot (not boiling) water. Add 3 egg yolks, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoons salt, 1-2 drops of tabasco all at once, and beat with rotary beater until thick. Remove from hot water, pour over eggs and serve immediately. Uses double boiler.
