Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 12 lb stale crusty Italian bread, crumbled
  • ground hot pepper
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 pint water or 1 pint chicken stock

Directions

  1. Set the water to heat, crumble the bread into 4 bowls, beat the eggs, and chop the basil.
  2. Heat the oil in a pot big enough to contain the water as well, and saute the garlic and hot pepper to taste for a minute or two. Add the water, bring the mixture to a boil, and cook for a couple of minutes. Vigorously stir in the eggs and the basil and cook a minute more stirring all the while. Ladle the mixture over the bread and serve at once.
