Yorkshire Old Wives' Sod
5 good-sized eggs
3 gills new milk
2 thin oatcakes
pepper & salt

Break the eggs into a basin and beat for 2 minutes. Add the milk and seasoning, mixing well. Have ready a baking-pan nicely greased with fresh butter. Pour in the beaten eggs and milk mixture. Next break the oatcakes into pieces about½ in. square. Sprinkle them on top of the sod. Add a few nuts of butter and place in a moderate oven. Bake for 20 minutes. If the oatcakes are lightly toasted and buttered before breaking up they make the sod a tastier dish.
