1938 – Eggs Pola-Naise

Beulah Livingstone, an old friend of the late great Silent film star Rudolph Valentino who has just written a book about him, tells me about his love for Pola Negri. He liked to cook for her, and Miss Livingstone recalls the special dish Rudy would make for Pola, calling it humorously Eggs Pola-naise.

Ten eggs, 1 cup of fresh corn cut from cob, 1 onion, 1 can tomato soup, 1 green pepper, 1/2 clove garlic, and 1 tablespoon of butter. Heat butter, fry chopped onion, pepper and garlic until only slightly brown. Stir in tomato soup, add corn, and seasoning. Simmer for 1/2 hour. Remove from heat. Cool. Break eggs in bowl and beat only slightly. Combine with cooled sauce. Turn into buttered egg pan and scramble eggs until soft and smooth. Serve with large piece of Italian Bread. Serves 6.
