Can you write exactly how it is written for us? Maybe the whole recipe? It's not making much sense. Thanks!

Does it mean "pieces"? It's a little odd but that could be it.

It means Politically Correct, but you can only find politically correct eggs in places like Berkley, or the Peoples Republic of Santa Monica.

no fair, Caine. OP asked a legitimate question... It does mean "pieces," altho it's a weird choice of terms. seems to me it would be more important to indicate what size eggs to use, but ????

I would be interested to know if the recipe came from a book, magazine, etc. Are there other recipes that use that terminology?? Where did the recipe come from etc..

Thanks......
