How do you 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.
It is a great way to use up leftover 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.
Recipe variations on creamed eggs on toast
There are many variations on this dish, and honestly, I think they are good. You might have heard this dish is 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 leftover 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.
