Creamed Eggs

Today I'm joining in to share a favorite egg recipe for Frugal Upstate's Frugal Food Series!

My mom made this favorite egg dish a lot when we were growing up and now it is also one of my husband's favorites. We eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner-it's good anytime!

Basically, this is a white sauce with hard-boiled eggs mixed in at the end.

It's easy to make, delicious, and frugal too!

Creamed Eggs(served over biscuits, toast or even waffles)

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over low heat. When melted, whisk in 2 tablespoons of flour and a little salt(1/2 to 1 teaspoon;you can always add more before serving). When flour and butter mixture is smooth, gradually add 2 cups of milk, whisking and stirring constantly over low heat.

Let cook until thickened (usually about 5-10 minutes), stirring and/or whisking frequently so the sauce does not scorch.

Add several sliced, hard-boiled eggs. I also will often add a handful of shredded cheese to the sauce along with the eggs.

Serve over biscuits, toast or waffles for a yummy breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Serves 3-4

-chopped ham
-crumbled and cooked bacon
-a handful of green peas
-canned tuna, drained

Ohhh great! I was hoping someone would add this recipe. Someone mentioned this once in the comments on my blog, but since I've never tried it myself i didn't want to list it as a recipe for Egg week. So thank you!

I'll have to try it soon-with the kiddos home from school in a few more weeks I'll need some more lunch ideas besides ramen noodles (Buddy's favorite) and sandwiches :)
