Jacques Pepin's Gratin of Eggs

Jacques Pepin's Gratin of Eggs created by Karen Elizabeth

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Slice eggs and arrange them in one 4 to 6 cup gratin dish (or do individual gratins if you like).
  • Melt butter in a saucepan and when hot, add onions; cook them over medium heat, stirring occasionally for 2 or 3 minutes until they sizzle and have just started to brown.
  • Add flour, mix well, and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add milk, salt, pepper; stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil then lower the heat and let sauce simmer gently for about a minute.
  • Pour over the eggs in the gratin dish.
  • Mix the sauce and eggs gently, sprinkle with grated Swiss cheese, and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Place under the broiler for another 4 or 5 minutes to brown the top.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Another option is to arrange the egg/sauce mixture on top of some thinly sliced smoked ham--.

    Added chopped ham and chopped green chili's and substituted jack cheese for the Swiss. Had mushrooms separate from the dish because some people don't like them! It turned out beautifully. Thank you for the recipe ????

    Such an easy and delicious recipe. Added dry mustard and sweet paprika for a bit more flavor. Also chopped some chives for garnish after it was cooked. Only change I would make is to increase flour to 2 tablespoons. Made the dish with chopped ham like others have recommended. Gave it 4 stars only because my sauce wasn't very thick but still delicious over English muffins! Make it. :)

    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!
