Hard-Cooked Egg Gratin

Author: Canadian Living

Our family always enjoys this creamy casserole, made with refrigerated hard-cooked Easter eggs, for supper or a hearty lunch. Sometimes we put the eggs on a bed of spinach instead of using peas.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheese Gruyere, Cheddar or Swiss
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 green onions
  • 1 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

Method

In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, without browning. Gradually whisk in milk; add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup (250 mL) of the cheese until melted.

Cut eggs in half lengthwise; chop onions into pea-size pieces. Arrange eggs, cut side up, in greased 6-cup (1.5 L) gratin or casserole dish; sprinkle with peas and onions. Pour sauce over top; sprinkle with remaining cheese and bread crumbs. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until bubbly and slightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
