‘Boil your Eggs hard, and take out a good many of the Yolks whole, then cut the rest in Quarters, Yolks and Whites together. Set on some Gravy, with a little shred Thyme and Parsley in it; give it a Boil or two, then put in your Eggs, with a little grated Nutmeg; shake it up with a Bit of Butter, till it be as thick as another Fricasy; then fry Artichoke Bottoms in thin Slices, and serve it up. Garnish with Eggs shred small
