The Incredible, Inedible Egg

A new aquisition from the library book sale is the inspiration for this weeks' blog feature - egg recipes.  Last night while we watched HGTV (yes, we're addicted) Margo and I started skimming through the cookbooks I had stuffed into my $4.50-for-everything-you-can-fit-into-it bag.  We found tons of awful and/or hilarious recipes, so I can promise LOTS of new frightening foods will be coming your way!  The cookbook that supplies the wonderful egg concoctions we'll feature this week is 300 ways to serve EGGS (Frances Troy Northcross in collaboration with Culinary Arts Institute, Consolidated Book Publishers, 1940), a book that afforded us lots of yucks - both in the sense of laughter, and as in "Oh, yuck!". Casey was listening in, and when he heard the recipe for Root Beer Egg Shake, he lobbied hard to have it featured as our first recipe this week. I think it's the totally unexpected addition of OJ that makes this raw egg drink worthy of the title frightening food.


1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 tsp. root beer extract
1/4 tsp. salt
2 TBS. cream
3 TBS. orange juice
1 cup milk
Combine chilled ingredients and shake or beat thoroughly.  For 1.
