A favorite breakfast dish of mine growing up was an egg with white sauce. However, I dubbed this dish, "eggs with the white stuff." Every morning my mom would ask me what I wanted to eat for breakfast and I said, "Can I have eggs with that white stuff on top?" The name eventually changed to "Eggs with white stuff."
I'll never forget the time I spent the night at my childhood friend's house, and her mom asked me what I wanted for breakfast. I told her eggs with white stuff. I thought every mom knew what eggs with white stuff was. She asked me what eggs with white stuff was, and I replied, "A hardboiled egg on bread." I was rather disappointed when she served me a piece of plain white bread, with a hard-boiled egg next to it. When she told me breakfast was ready, I looked at my plate and stared at it. She asked me if that was what I meant and I replied, "Where's the white stuff?" That morning was filled with a lot of frustration and panic because I had no idea how to describe "eggs with white stuff." When my mom came to pick me up, she asked my mother what eggs with what stuff was. She gave her the recipe, and they both laughed at me. I was totally clueless and annoyed because I didn't have my usual Saturday morning dish.
Today, I make this dish for myself. Especially when I want some comfort food after a hard day.
Here's the recipe.
Eggs With White Stuff
Place toasted piece of bread on a plate. Slice a hard boiled egg in thin pieces and cover bread in hard boiled egg slices.
In a skillet, melt butter and add flour for your roux. Once the roux thickens, pour milk in and whisk on medium heat until the sauce thickens.
Pour on top of the hardboiled eggs. Slice the second hard boiled egg, reserving the yolk, and scatter on top of the white sauce. Crush the yolk and sprinkle over the white sauce.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
