Rose has been blogging about eggs so I thought I would share a recent ‘discovery’ I made in the kitchen. We frequently have eggs for dinner. Usually in the form of warm scrambled eggs on salad. In an effort to punch up the eggs I decided to make a small amount of sauce and see what happened. I was very pleased with the result. The eggs never get rubbery or dry. They come out as soft flavorful curds. So…
Cook 1 tbl of minced shallot gently in 1 tsp butter. When the shallots soften add 1 tsp flour to create a roux. Add 1/3 cup milk to make the sauce. Add 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese to the sauce and salt to taste. Stir in 5 beaten large eggs. Cook at medium heat stirring continually.
When the eggs are first added it will look a bit of a mess. But as the eggs come up to temperature the sauce will incorporate.

It sounds good Gene. I make eggs for dinner once a week (for my family). Jacques Pepin’s books have lots of good egg recipes.  My husband especially likes his bowtie and egg recipe. I halve the recipe:

Aside from Spanish Tortilla, I don’t do much in the way of main course egg recipes, I’ll have to give these a try!

Jacques is great cook. I think Americans overlook eggs as a main course. We stayed at a gasthaus in Germany once where we were served a delightful meal. It arrived in a large wok-like skillet. There were round slices of potato fried to a golden brown and then embedded in egg custard.

Jacques is great cook.

The above recipe I posted is from his Fast Food book. He has an excellent recipe in his Celebrates book that uses skillet fried potatoes. I’ve made it a few times, excellent!
