Curried Eggs in Shrimp Sauce Recipe

I like to dress up ordinary hard-cooked eggs with a special shrimp sauce. You can assemble this casserole the day before and bake the next morning.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of shrimp soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pound cooked small shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter; whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually add soup and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted. Stir in shrimp.
  • 2. Pour 2 cups of sauce into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; set remaining sauce aside. Cut eggs in half lengthwise; arrange whites over sauce. In a bowl, mash yolks. Stir in the mayonnaise, curry powder, mustard, paprika and salt. Spoon into egg whites. Top with reserved sauce.
