    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    Perfect way to use up the spoils from the Easter egg hunt... this is almost identical to a dish that Ed and I had on our cozy cottage honeymoon, except that the eggs were served on a bed of thinly sliced smoked ham. Our personal preference is for a bit less onion; adjust as you wish. It's quick and delicious served with a side of the freshest fruit.

      Made as recipe, we enjoyed this, different! I used plenty of onions, we like onions, and in fact, I used red onions, very good. I used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheese, not having swiss. I added some mustard powder to the white sauce. Very easy to prepare, this certainly would be delicious served on toast or muffins, although I served it as a supper dish with steamed rice, which was pleasant, but I think i would prefer the muffin option another time! Lovely, thank you, EdsGirlAngie!

      This is ever so delicious. Served to company on a Sunday for brunch occasion. Did put the thin slices of smoked ham beneath as the recipe suggested. The only difference was that I used rice flour, as it is gluten-free and mild so as not to change any of the flavors. This recipe is perfect as is, but one could use white pepper and maybe a pinch of cayenne pepper at another time. Mushrooms could be added when the onions are cooking, just a suggestion, but not at all really needed. Thanks for the gift of this recipe.
