Hard Boiled Egg Recipes: After Easter Casserole

My! Just look at all those colorful eggs in your refrigerator. Oh, that reminds me of a great after Easter dinner recipe.

After Easter Casserole:

Basic ingredients:

8 hard-boiled eggs, chopped or slice

4 slices cooked ham, chopped or sliced into strips

2 cups wide egg noodle, cooked to package directions and tossed with butter or margarine

No egg noodles? Make two cups of rice instead. Again lightly toss with butter.

Cheese sauce:

4 T butter or margarine

4 T flour

2 c. milk (or 1c.evaporated mild and 1 c. water )

1 c. shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese

pinch onion powder

pinch mustard powder ( or 1 t. prepared mustard )

Sauce procedure:

In a medium saucepan over medium low heat, melt butter.

Whisk in the flour and let bubble a few minutes until the starchy smell is replaced by a more “buttered popcorn” smell. Golden is fine, but do not let it brown.

Slowly stir in 2 cups of milk and stir occasionally as it thickens.

When the sauce is close to a nicely thickened consistency, stir in onion powder, mustard and grated cheese.

In a deep casserole dish or maybe a pie plate… OK, You know what? In any oven safe dish that will hold the whole dad-blasted thing:

Spread the buttered noodles or rice evenly on the bottom of the pan.

Sprinkle the ham and egg pieces on top.

Pour the cheese sauce over everything and sprinklr the top with bread crumbs, if you like.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until heated throughout. A casserole dish may take 40 minutes while an 9″X13″ pan may take much less. Your just gonna have to give it a try.
