Goldenrod Eggs Recipe

This is a dish my wife had to learn to make in her high school home economics class. I've adapted and renamed it. To me, it has no equal and brings to mind those special days of the '40's. —Richard, Ramsey Eugene, Oregon

"This recipe has been a family traditional breakfast for 5 generations. Although in my family we use either half and half or real cream, and sometimes serve it over potatoes instead of Toast.

"I tried this recipe to use up some of our leftover Easter eggs. It was very good & everyone enjoyed it. I doubled the recipe & served it over biscuits."

"This was our traditional Easter breakfast recipe. Used up a lot of eggs, and was delicious. My mother served it on biscuits. I like english muffins. A lot of people are afraid of trying to make white sauce because of the lumps. To be lump free, warm the milk in the microwave for a minute or so. Voila! No lumps! Also, try adding a tablespoon or two of sherry to the sauce. Gets it up past the home ec. level."
