flour, and season with salt and pepper. Cover with the bacon cut into
strips, lay the rest of the birds on the top, intersperse slices of egg,
season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with parsley and lemon-rind as
before; three-quarter fill the dish with cold water, cover with puff-paste,
and bake in a quick oven.

Time: About 2-1/2 hours. SUFFICIENT for about 12 persons.
