All you need are the eggs and a cream sauce. This dish is great served over toast at breakfast for the day after Easter because it uses up some of your leftover eggs!

this is something our family has every easter morning. my kids love it. the only thing i notice is the sauce may be too thin. double the butter and flour. my grandmother used to make this a lot but just use the egg whites and then grate the yolks over the top. i believe she called it "golden rod".

I love it. My mom used to make me creamed egg for breakfast and it was a treat. Its a recipe passed on from my great grandma and I will pass it on to my two girls. Its a tried and true tradition that just warms your heart in the morning. If you like gravy and biscuits you will love creamed egg over toast or biscuits. Its just a basic white sauce with diced hard boiled egg. You can jazz it up to your own personal liking. I love this recipe and I highly recommend it. Read More

My mom used to make this for me when I was a little girl. What a great cold weather breakfast! I'd cut back on the milk just a tad to bring out the flavor more. Read More

Not as good as I've had it before but it was a quick and easy breakfast. I can't have milk so I used soymilk instead. I only had vanilla soymilk and it turned out wonderful. Except the sauce wasn't as thick as I'd like it to be. I don't know if that was because of the soymilk or the recipe. Read More

To my children these are the ultimate comfort food. My college-age girls crave this when they've been stressed out by midterms or finals. They want it when they're sick. They love it with cheddar cheese added to the sauce served over buttered wheat toast. A family tradition and a wonderful recipe! Read More
