A great way to use up Easter eggs, but good at any time of year. This recipe comes from the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 onions, peeled and sliced
- 8 eggs (hard-cooked, peeled and sliced)
- salt, to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- cracker crumb, buttered
- Preheat oven to 400F and butter a casserole dish.
- Melt butter and saute the onions until translucent.
- Cover bottom of prepared casserole with half the onions.
- Add eggs, season to taste, and cover with remaining onions.
- Pour white sauce over all, sprinkle top with buttered crumbs and bake until golden, about 20 minutes.
Makes a great brunch dish! Also, a great way to fancy up hard boiled eggs. I used nice big sweet onions. I loved it just as it is, but I may add some horseradish or mustard powder next time to add a little zing. Thanx for a new use for hb eggs!
