Let me start off by saying thank you for all of your congratulations on our twin announcement! I loved every comment and made me love you guys even more. We really are so excited to start this adventure. Nervous, but excited. How can I say thank you?? Well, for starters I’ll share this meal. For enders, that’s a word, stay tuned to my instagram because I really want to give something away to all of you guys.
This is one of my most favorite meals ever and I’m excited to share it with you. It’s what I ate after church on Sunday ever week. Just did it yesterday too. We would make a whole batch for us five girls and I would literally toast 5 pieces of toast, for myself, and pour this egg sauce on it. And I am not exaggerating. I used to be able to put down food like I was starving. I was so skinny too! What happened? I can still eat, but not like that. I blame it on having a baby. He’s worth it though. 🙂 It does make me nervous for when I’m older though… with my food obsession, my metabolism better keep up with me. Knock on wood.
I wish I could have gotten a little more better of a photo but to be honest, this meal isn’t exactly photogenic. We originally called it eggs on toast growing up but when I met my roommate, Sydney, in college she said her family made the same recipe! (With minor tweaks. Mine is better though.) They called it Eggzella though and that just kind of stuck.
It’s a white sauce with grated or diced hard-boiled eggs into it, poured onto toast. My family always rip the toast apart so we don’t have to do any cutting and then pour the sauce on but if I did that for the photo then it really wouldn’t have been photogenic. Guys, try it. It’s comforting and delicious. One of my very, very favorites.
Feeds around 3 people if each person has around 2 pieces of toast each.
- 4 eggs
- 4 TBSP flour
- 4 TBSP butter
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 t salt
- Boil eggs by putting boiling water and then putting the eggs in the hot, boiling water. If you put them in cold then they don’t peel nicely. Let them simmer for fifteen minutes. Put in ice water.
- While eggs are simmering, make your white sauce. Melt butter in pot.
- Add flour to melted butter and mix to make a paste.
- Slowly whisk in milk and simmer while stirring until it is thickened. Add salt.
- Peel your eggs and either grate or dice them into your sauce.
- Pour on toast.
