Back in the '50s and '60s when my parents were raising 5 children, one of the meals my mother prepared for our Friday suppers was something she called Eggs Goldenrod. We were a Catholic family and in those days, Fridays were observed as meatless days, so it wasn't unusual for us to have this egg dish.

I don't think my mother really had a recipe for it since I never saw one. Here's what I've come up with as a more than adequate duplicate. Oh, and sometimes I'll add chopped ham if I want to "meat" it up. I've also served it for breakfast. We've always served it on toast made from homemade bread. It's still one of my favorites.

(Serves 6)
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
2 cups milk
6 hard-cooked eggs
Buttered hot toast, toast cups or biscuits

Peel eggs and separate yolks from whites. Coarsely chop the whites and set aside. Put yolks through a sieve or ricer or chop until they are the consistency of fine crumbs. Put into a small serving bowl.

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in flour and seasonings. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk, a little at a time, and heat to boiling. Whisking constantly, boil and stir for 1 minute. Gently stir in chopped egg whites and heat through.

To serve, place toast, toast cups or split biscuits on each plate. Top with some of the white sauce and sprinkle egg yolks over top. Serve while hot.

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!

My favourite has to be Kueh Sarlat or Serikaya, a steamed Asian dessert that has glutinous rice with egg custard as topping.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

KatieE - I recall my mom making something very similar to that (I'm a product of the '50's & '60's as well) except that she just quartered or thickly sliced the hard-boiled eggs & added regular mild yellow curry powder to the sauce. She also served it over toast, although sometimes would vary that by serving it over plain white rice.

Even though these days I'm a fiend for all types of curry, I remember back then it wasn't one of my favorite meals.

Bread pudding. I'd eat bread pudding every day if it didn't miraculously show up on my hips the next morning.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Huevos Rancheros - my way.
Make a spicy tomato sauce. Add chorizo, or ham if you like it. Place in a baking dish and break two eggs per person on top. Cover with a slice of white cheese. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the eggs are set.
Serve with corn tortillas and fresh, hot Salsa!

Then, of course, there's a wonderful breakfast dish involving
a toasted muffin or savoury scone
a thick slice of smoked salmon
a poached egg on top
a Hollandaise sauce
a sprinkling of parsley and raw red onion.

That looks like a good old fashioned British fry up! YUM!
I love a bacon and fried egg sandwich with HP sauce...it's what HP was invented for!

Eggs play an essential role in much of my cooking but if I was to pick one favourite right now at this moment, it must be

5. Microwave uncovered on medium 6 to 8 minutes, rotating each cup and then the dish 1/2 turn once, until custard is almost set (the centers should jiggle a little).
6. Let stand about 5 minutes until center is firm and sprinkle with the brown sugar.

Thank you for that delicious recipe...i find the texture & taste more satisfying when chylled for in the fridge but at the same time its nice to have a warm cup on a cold day

I really like this recipe, too. Having lots of fresh eggs helps us out.
