Made for Help a Camera-less Chef Game #5 ~ Your intro could not be more accurate. This is very easily made & so lovely! I hard-boiled my eggs last nite & prepared them so they would be good to go this morning. I did start by rubbing the yolks thru a strainer, but found it easier & quicker to crumble them. A med white sauce is key as you do not want it runny-thin or gravy thick. It also should be tasted for S&P to taste pref ~ the sauce & eggs will need it. This was a very fast-fix & impressed my *breakfast hound* DH b4 he left for work. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
I grew up eating this dish on Sunday mornings. Everybody I have made it for absolutely loves it.
