This is a simple but delicious breakfast recipe that isn’t served often enough. The height of morning comfort foods!

Whenever my family gets together it is almost guaranteed that someone requests creamed eggs on toast for breakfast. At this point, we (the breakfast monsters) don’t even have to request it. It just sort of naturally occurs, like the tides. If you were an oceanographer you could study it.

 

For the uninitiated, creamed eggs on toast is a simple combination of béchamel sauce and hardboiled eggs served over toasted crusty bread. It is incredibly simple and wildly underrated. It is made even simpler when serving after Easter and is a great way to use up those leftover hardboiled eggs- plus dyed eggs turn the sauce hilarious colors.
