I grew up with these! My mom often made them after Easter to use up the easter eggs in the house. Having a craving for these once again, I made these and turned out great. I only added a dash of cayenne pepper and I don't bother with the oven part. If you wait until the sauce has thickened, you can add the eggs then, heat through and serve over toast. Very tatsy. Even my boyfriend who almost refused to eat these had a bite, which lead to two servings later. Thanks!

This recipe was OK. I made it for a family brunch. Half liked it and the other half hated it. It is VERY rich and turns out almost like an eggs-benedict casserole.

I made this for the staff at my school when it was my turn for Friday Breakfast - it was a complete success and led to tons of requests for photocopies of the recipe! I boiled the eggs the night before which saved a little on time the next day. Well worth the effort!

I had this for supper tonight and it was great. I think I'll take a hint from Dreginek though, and next time, I'll skip the oven-baking part. I'll mix in the (shredded) cheese after the sauce has thickened, followed by the eggs, and then serve over toast. Thanks for the post Katherine.

My mom and I made these to get rid of the easter eggs in the house as you can only handle so many deviled eggs...wonderful. We did it all over the stove top and served over a combination of toast and toasted english muffins. Great stuff!

I chopped the eggs and added them to the sauce. Then poured it over heated ham on English muffins. We had it for Easter breakfast and it was a BIG HIT!

Very rich! I served for guests and they raved. It's pretty simple and if you pre-boil your eggs the night before, this is quicker than other egg casseroles.

This was ok. We thought the cheese sauce was a little too over-whelming, which is surprising as we are both cheese freaks. Nice for a change, but I doubt I'll make it again.
