Hard-cooked eggs and yummy cheesy sauce, spooned over toast points! This is my family's favorite holiday brunch. We call this dish 'Claudia's Eggs'. Try to use extra sharp Cheddar cheese for the flavor.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 3 dashes cayenne pepper
- 6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
- 3 slices extra sharp Cheddar cheese, halved
- 6 slices white bread, toasted and cut into triangles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in evaporated milk and water. Season with salt, white pepper and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened.
Arrange sliced eggs in a medium baking dish. Pour sauce over eggs. Place cheese slices on top.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Place toast on plates, and spoon egg mixture over.
