How to Make Creamed Eggs
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 comfort food.
Here are the recipe steps:
- Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Add flour and salt and whisk together with the butter.
- Cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.
- Add half of the milk. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens.
- Add the remaining milk. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens.
- Add chopped egg, reserving some for a garnish.
- Serve creamed eggs over toast and garnish with chopped egg.
Recipe Variations on Creamed Eggs on Toast
There are many variations on this dish, and honestly, I think they are good.
You may have heard this dish is referred to as Eggs a la Goldenrod. With egg goldenrod, cooked egg whites are chopped up and added into the sauce, and then the egg yolks are chopped and sprinkled on top.
Flavor up the Sauce
Add seasonings: You can season the sauce with cayenne pepper, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, sherry, chopped onions, or anything else you may like.
Add meat: You can add leftover ham, bacon, or turkey to this dish.
Make a cheese sauce: Add a touch of cheese to the sauce.
I think you will find you can change this sauce into just about anything you like.

My mom made this for us 13 kids. We’ll be making it this Sunday at the campground. I’ll add ground mustard for an even better flavor.
Turned out perfect with a1/2t ground mustard. My husband never had it but ate 3 pieces of toast with this yummy dish.

My mom raised 5 kids on a military budget moving across the country and overseas 50 years ago. This was a favorite when we were growing up. My brothers don’t remember or don’t care for it much these days but it’s a quick easy meal that is filling any time of the day. I discovered 2 things about it. It’s easily adaptable for moderation or additional ingredients and my gen X and gen z boys adore it.
This is always asked for on Easter Sunday. Dinner could be being served and I still need to make this. For 40 years.
