A new family tradition (only 30 years old). Delicious and great and nutritious way of using up hard boiled

I was skeptical about this at first - but with 4 kids I had a TON of Easter Eggs to use up this year! I just tried this (made a half recipe for 1 person) and it is SUPER YUMMY. Very creamy and delicious. I did add a few drops of Tabasco to the sauce just to give it a little zip and plenty of salt. I didn't use a grater on the yolks - just rubbed them between my fingers and they crumbled very nicely. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
