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--.
