Scrambled eggs and calf's brains

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Calf's brains
1 medium Onion; minced
2 tablespoons Butter
½ teaspoon White pepper
½ teaspoon Paprika
3 \N Eggs
1 teaspoon Salt; approx

Soak brains in cold water, and peel off membrane. Drop brains into boiling water for 1 minute, then remove. Dry brains and scrape with a knife, reducing them to a rough pulp.

Cook onion in butter over low heat for about 10 minutes. Add pepper, paprika, and brains to the onion and continue to cook, covered, over very low heat for about 10 minutes.

Beat eggs as for scrambling. Just before serving, mix in with the brains, making a soft scrambled egg out of the mixture. Be sure to mix brains and eggs thoroughly. The texture should be almost like a creamy risotto, not like HARD scrambled eggs. Add salt to taste.

NB this is a traditional appetizer in Hungary, sometimes served on a slice of toast.
