Creamed Lettuce Soup Recipe

1 teaspoon of chopped onion
2 tablespoons of butter
2 heads of lettuce, chopped
2 tablespoons of rice
2 cups of white stock
1/2 cup of hot cream
1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
Salt, pepper, and a dash of nutmeg

Saute the onion in butter for a few minutes (DON'T BROWN!). Put in the lettuce, rice and stock, cover the mixture, and cook it until the rice is tender. At that point, fold in the hot cream, egg yolk and desired seasonings. (NOTE: Once you've added the egg yolk, don't allow the soup to boil!) This recipe works best if you use only the heart of the lettuce. Save the outer leaves for salads or sandwiches.
