Creamed Eggs on Toast is a dish that I enjoyed ever so much as a child. As an adult I haven't made this as often, I wished that I had not let this classic dish fall out of my recipe library.
Creamed eggs on toast was a dish that was introduced to me by a neighbor. It was Lent and we couldn't have meat on Fridays when I was growing up. We also had this dish when you wanted a heartier dish for breakfast. If you have never had creamed eggs on toast, hard boiled eggs are chopped and placed into a white sauce, or even a bechamel sauce, and then this is spooned over toast. For me, this is a comfort food. It is a great way to use up left over Easter eggs, or even when you don't have a lot in the kitchen, this is one of those dishes you should be able to put together.
There are many variations on this dish, and honestly, I think they are good. You might have heard this dish being referred to as Eggs A La Goldenrod. Here the cooked egg whites are chopped up and added into the sauce, and then the egg yolks are chopped and sprinkled on top. You can season the sauce with cayenne pepper, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, sherry, chopped onions, or anything else you may like.
If you like you could add left over ham, bacon, or turkey to this dish. You may even want to add a touch of cheese to the sauce. I think you will find you can change this sauce into just about anything you like. I personally like this dish as it reminds me of growing up, and having this for the first time at my neighbor's across the street. This was a dish that I also quickly learned how to make.
