Eggsaronius


That's how Sarah spelled it. (She carefully labelled all the leftovers when she was cleaning up after supper. She's that kind of girl.) I spell it "Eggs Erroneous" and it is delicious on fish. I also enjoy it on my mashed potatoes. It used to be plain old egg gravy until we watched Ernest Goes to Camp. I think Eggs Erroneous tastes much better than plain old egg gravy. This recipe makes just over one cup of gravy, but you can easily double it if you need more.

2 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter over medium heat in small saucepan. Mix in flour, then slowly add milk while stirring with whisk. Stir and heat until boiling and thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs and season to taste. Serve immediately.

(This isn't Mom's recipe - I just used my basic white sauce recipe and added the egg. Add as much egg as you like. For supper tonight I doubled everything, except that I used three eggs because we get our eggs from a friend whose chickens lay extra-huge eggs.)

Oh give me strength, I just finally stopped having nightmares of being forced to eat eggsaronius as a poor, defenseless child. This is the ONLY thing my mother has ever made that I STRONGLY dislike.

But, of course, thats not to say that you won't enjoy it! If only I thought before I typed...

Sincere apologies to all Eggsaronium lovers who may have been offended.

I had originally thought this called for yellow modeling clay? ;]
