This is one of his favorite breakfast dishes from when he was growing up in rural Oregon. His mother would make it on a regular basis for him. Naturally, when we were first married, he requested me to make this wonderful dish.
I dialed up his mother and asked her for the recipe. She told me this:
"Make a cream sauce, add your eggs, and serve it over toast."
Sounds simple, right?
She failed to mention that you use hard boiled eggs.
I served my husband something that resembled a cross between egg drop soup and scrambled eggs. To his credit, he ate it and didn't complain. He even complimented me on originality.
After that little mishap, I strived to make it right.
Here is what you do:
- peel and slice 6 HARD BOILED eggs
- make a basic cream sauce *see a recipe in comments!
- combine the eggs and sauce
- heat all the way through
- serve over toast
Do you have a similar "newlywed" story that involved the kitchen? I know my cousins do...
