Food for "thought" Friday

This recipe was introduced to me by my husband. His mom always called it Eggs Benedict. Which was NOT the same. My husband ordered eggs benedict a few years back at a restaurant and was, quite frankly, disgusted by what he was served. The next day I made him his mom's Eggs Benedict. It is an Easter tradition in our house. As are egg salad sandwhiches.

"Eggs Benedict"

3 T. butter
3 T. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
1-2 c. grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
3-4 hard boiled eggs, chopped up or diced

In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir with a whisk until the roux turns a golden color (about 2 minutes or so). Quickly add all the milk and stir with a wisk until mixture boils. Add salt, pepper and cheese. Once the cheese is melted, add chopped boiled eggs.

Serve over warm buttered toast. OH so yummy!

That is so funny that he was disgusted by his eggs benedict at a resturaunt!! :) This sounds good. Sounds like an egg salad! (but more sophisticated than how I make egg salad!)

I was also disgusted by my first taste of eggs benedict. It was on out honeymoon...and they were gross! I'll stick with scrambled.
