The French Way of Cooking Cabbage

Chop cold boiled white cabbage and let it drain till perfectly dry: stir in some melted butter to taste; pepper, salt and four tablespoonfuls of cream; after it is heated through add two well-beaten eggs; then turn the mixture into a buttered frying pan, stirring until it is very hot and becomes a delicate brown on the under side.

Place a hot dish over the pan, which must be reversed when turned out to be served.

From "The Whitehouse Cookbook", 1887, by Mrs. F.L. Gillette
