My favorite treat as a child. We'd have this for breakfast the day after Easter...all the eggs I'd found then became my favorite breakfast!

How to Make Egg Thing


  1. Carefully separate the yolks from the whites and set aside. Chop whites to about 1-inch pieces. Set aside.
  2. In medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Sprinkle flour over melted butter and stir to form a paste. Slowly stir in milk, whisking until smooth after each increment is added. Once desired thickness is reached, add Parmesan and salt and pepper. If sauce is too thick, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time. Add chopped egg whites.
  3. Over medium bowl, press yolks through a sieve with the back of a spoon, forming a powder.
  4. Toast several pieces of bread and spoon sauce over top. Sprinkle with powdered yolks. Serve immediately.
