Ol' Fashion Egg Coffee

30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
3 ingredients
12 servings
REAL brewed coffee is almost a thing of the past. My Dad used to make this regularly. He was a hired farm hand in the 1930's & 40's, until he met my Mother. He learned how to make "Egg Coffee" from one of the lady's he worked for & he then passed it down to me. The egg takes away any bitterness.Use an old 12 cup porcelian coffee pot...remove the stem & basket, if they're there. If you don't have one, you can pick one up at a flea market for just a few dollars.It's a little tricky at first, but once you get the hang of how to brew it, you might not go back to your drip-coffeemaker!
