Method

Before you start, heat a soup-plate as much as you safely can; then, while the bouillon or stock is heating, fry the piece of bread golden on both sides in butter. Try to finish it just as the soup comes to boiling point. Put it quickly on the hot soup plate, break an egg on to the fried bread and pour the boiling liquid slowly on to the egg. Let it stand for three to four minutes before eating
