    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!

    I learned to make this in home ec too back in 1958 only then we served on toast. The English Muffins were different but a very good alternative. Made for the Easter Egg Hunt 2009.

    This was yummy! I figure if they taught it in home Ec. 75 years ago, I should probably like it. I followed it to the letter, and I have to tell you, old fashioned recipies rule! Thanks for posting it!!!!
