I found an old coffee can filled with old recipes that my great-grandmother used from the 1920's through the 1970's. While I have yet to actually try any, I hope to this coming summer, as there are a LOT of recipes for preserves. Some of these recipes are handwritten, and many are torn from newspapers and magazines. Please enjoy, and let me know if you try any!

Scalloped Eggs

4 hard cooked eggs
2 cupfuls of white sauce
3/4 cupful of cooked material - ground ham, flaked fish, or chopped chicken
1/2 cupful of bread crumbs
1 tablespoonful of butter

Arrange alternate layers of sliced eggs and other cooked material in a buttered baking dish. Pour white sauce over the mixture; cover with bread crumbs, dot with butter, and brown in a moderate oven. Serve in the baking dish as a main dish for luncheon or supper. Serves 6.
