My megavore dd & I enjoyed this tremendously! It makes a lot more sauce than we needed for 8 eggs. But, it's easy, yummy & a comforting meal. Thank you! Made for German 4/12,

What a delicious quick breakfast, the mustard really gives the sauce a unique flavor! I scaled this down for 1 serving and served over toast points. This will be made often and added to my breakfast favorites and my "Best of 2012 Cookbook" as well. Thanks. Made for More Than Sauerkraut & Dumplings in the German Forum.

This was very tasty! Annoyingly, I completely forgot the onion, so I topped with some sliced green onion. Next time I will remember the onion though! I only wanted enough for two eggs but had some trouble converting from metric to US since the site's built-in unit converter does not work at the moment. I ended up using 1 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp flour, and about 3/4 c broth and had enough sauce for four eggs (fortunately I had boiled four!) I used a German mustard, Loewensenf, for the mustard. Looking forward to trying again *with* the onion! Thanks for sharing :)
