Sformato Di Uccelletti


12 thrushes
3 eggs
1/2 lb. butter
2 bay leaves
1 cup bechamel

How to make the Mold of Thrushes:

Clean, bone and saute the thrushes with half the amount of butter and 2 bay leaves for 35 min. Crush them in a mortar and pass through a sieve. Add bechamel, egg yolks and whipped egg whites. Pour into a buttered 12-in. mold and cook in bain-marie in the oven for about 35 min. at 400°F.

Any sformato, once unmolded, may be presented on a serving platter or may be used as an accompaniment to meat or fish preparations.
