Gratin Eggs on Toast

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lorac

One of my favorite comfort foods. An inexpensive and versatile main dish. I like to top the toast with cooked asparagus before adding the egg mixture. Stir in some chopped ham or top it with crumbled bacon.

Top Review by Northern Cook

I served this for Sunday brunch and asked my guests to rate it. They were a tough crowd and were only willing to give a five-star review if the food was laced with gold. So, four stars from this bunch is VERY high praise! I really liked this dish! The directions were easy to follow, it came together rather quickly, and it was delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!
