Milk pasta from Cod Pal Germ 551

55 A dish of eggs

Make a good spoon dish (mus) of eggs thus: Take four eggs and flour and chop that together, and see that there is not too little of the flour so that it can be chopped. And when it is small, put it into hot milk and do not make it too thick or too thin. Add a good amount of fat and strew sugar on it, and do not oversalt it.

I owe thanks to my friend Libby Cripps for pointing me to the as yet untranslated fifteenth-century culinary recipe collection that is bound with similar works on fabric dyes and on medicine in the Heidelberg Cod Pal Germ 551. It looks, at first glance, unexceptional, but I will try to keep up a flow of recipes and see whether it has anything of particular interest to offer.
