From: The Every-Day Cook-Book and Encyclopedia of Practical Recipes, For Family Use - Miss E. Neill - nd (circa 1890)

          Spread the bottom of a dish with two ounces of fresh butter; cover this with grated cheese; break eight whole eggs upon the cheese without breaking the yolks. Season with red pepper and salt if necessary; pour a little cream on the surface, strew about two ounces of grated cheese on the top, and set the eggs in a moderate oven* for about a quarter of an hour. Pass a hot salamander** over the top to brown it.

*about 350 degrees

** a heavy round cast-iron disc that gets very hot - use your broiler
