How to Make Hard Boiled Egg Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute onions in butter (or margarine) on medium heat 'til tender. Add flour, stir constantly with wooden spoon for 1 minute (to "cook out" the flour flavor).
  2. Slowly add some of the milk, while stirring constantly, 'til flour/milk mixture is smooth. switch to wire whisk. As mixture thickens, continue whisking in a little bit more milk. Stop adding milk when mixture stays smooth.
  3. Add ALL the cheese! (Let's be honest - this dish is a heart- stopping, once a year treat! Don't skip on the cheese or bacon!) As soon as cheese is melted, remove from heat.
  4. In greased 1-1/2 - 2-QT casserole (& in keeping with the "forget the cholesterol & sodium" mindset, I grease the casserole with - what else? BACON GREASE!!), layer: 1/2 the sliced eggs; 1/2 of the cheese sauce; 1/2 of the crushed potato chips; 1/2 the crumbled bacon. Repeat the layers 'til all gone. Top layer needs to be potato chips.
  5. Bake (uncovered) in 350 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes.

    Supposed to serve 10 people, but is so yummy, usually only serves 5-6.
