An excellent way to use up those Easter eggs. The cheese is optional, and you can use any kind you prefer.

I'm amazed to see this recipe online! My mother made this for family breakfasts my entire life....and I love it! We serve the eggs over wheat toast and it's just delicious. Also you might want to try omitting the cheese and flavoring the sauce with onion powder. It's killer!

Made according to recipe. Turned out as described but my family did not like it at all - even my non-picky eaters didn't like it. Must be an acquired taste or nostalgic thing.

I haven't actually made this recipe but I love how the eggs turn out using the recipe's boiling method. I never knew how long to boil eggs before and this method SAVES ENERGY too!! Thanks

Great for a light meal. I often buy several dozen eggs and hard boil one dozen while I put up groceries. I added garlic salt pepper dry mustard and parsley to the recipe. My husband said his mother made a similar dish when he was a child but this was much superior and more flavorful. He suggests that I chop the eggs as she did to make it easier to eat over toast points.

I agree.....your method for boiling the eggs is wonderful. I always fuddled around looking for the best way to boil them but this definately works wonderfully!

With the exception of the Parmesan cheese this is one of the early recipes we high school girls learned in our sophomore HomeEc class. First we learned to make bircuits then we learned to hard-boil an egg and then we learned to make the white sauce (that's what it used to be called). Finally we learned to put it all together; and I don't know if it was because I'd made it myself but I thought it was one of the bests meals I'd ever tasted. So much so that I made it for Mom and Dad that night. I was so happy to see this recipe on 'allrecipes'. Thank you for bringing back a happy 57-year-old memory!

This recipe was amazing! I added a little more butter and parmesan cheese then garlic and onion powder and parsley. Such good flavor! I will definitely put it on toast and make a sandwich next time. Much better than just hard-boiled eggs!

This was a recipe that my mother always served when the family was in for a Sunday breakfast or brunch. I agree with adding some worchestershire sauce and cayenne pepper. I cut the eggs into bite sized pieces. We also use chunks of ham. We serve it over toast points or toasted english muffins.

I wish I read the reviews before making this. Taking the advice and adding some onion would have made it fantastic. Otherwise this was quick and easy to make. Great flavor!
