CREAMED EGSS ON TOAST
This is put as a breakfast dish but we had it for dinner and believe me, it was filling.
I have my onstructions geared to novice cooks. So instructions are a little more lenghly than most. When dealing with White sauce, it turns many off.
Most would frown on it today due to the calories in the sauce, but I still make it and intend to keep a "Taste of Yesterday" in my life.
