DIRECTIONS

  • Make sauce first. Can be made in the microwave if you wish.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in saucepan and add the flour.
  • Whisk together till smooth, and fry gently for a few minutes which will remove the raw taste of the flour. Do not brown the roux.
  • Add the milk while whisking to avoid lumps, and cook the mixture till thickened. This will make a thin sauce.
  • Off heat, add the grated cheese, and whisk till it melts.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl to combine.
  • Saute the green onion in 2 tablespoons butter to soften.
  • Add beaten eggs and bacon.
  • Fry-scramble, and remove from pan while they are still quite soft (nearly set), and combine with the sauce.
  • Stir together, and place in a buttered 11x7 inch baking dish.
  • Butter the bread.
  • Whirl in a food processor to make buttered crumbs.
  • Sprinkle on top of the sauced eggs.
  • Can refrigerate, covered, overnight for baking the next morning.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 20 minutes, till set, and crumbs are toasted.
