Method

Cut a Toast round a Quartern Loaf, toad it brown, lay it on your Dish, butter it, and very carefully break six or eight Eggs on the Toad, and take a red-hot Shovel and hold over them. When they are done, squeeze a Seville Orange over them, and grate a little Nutmeg over it, and serve it up for a Side-plate. Or you may poach your Eggs, and lay them on the Toad; or toast your Toasts crisp, and pour a little boiling Water over it, and season it with a little Salt, and then lay your poached Eggs on it.
