  • 6 oz all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • nutmeg to taste

Ingredients:

  • 72 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized shell egg(s)
  • 4 1/2 lb Canadian bacon
  • 72 halves English muffin (cut in half and toasted)
  • 4 1/2 lb watercress (rinsed with stems removed)

  • 9 oz all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • nutmeg to taste

Preparation:

  1. Put the eggs in a sauce pan with enough cold water to cover. Boil for 15 minutes and remove from heat. Drain the eggs and allow to cool under cold running water. Remove the shells and separate the white from the yolk. Dice the whites for the sauce and break up the yolk for garnish.
  2. Slice the Canadian bacon into 1 ounce slices.
  3. In a sauce pan heat the milk with the onion and simmer for 5 minutes. In another sauce pan heat the clarified butter over moderate heat. Gradually add the flour to make a blonde roux cooking approximately 5 minutes. Remove the onion from the milk and gradually add the hot milk to the roux, whisking constantly. Cook until desired viscosity. Add the diced egg whites and season to taste. Strain if necessary.
  4. Plate the toasted English muffin half with a slice of Canadian bacon and sauce. Garnish with egg yolks. On the side serve the watercress and sliced strawberries. 

 

Notes

There are two methods for making an Onion Cloute:

  • Take a whole peeled onion, and attach the bay leaves using the whole cloves as "nail".
  • Make a slit in the onion, slide in the bay leaf and stud the onion with the whole cloves.
