Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  3. Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle half of the chopped egg in the bottom of the casserole, add half of the bacon; repeat.
  4. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and transparent. Stir in flour. Slowly add milk and shredded cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth and creamy. Pour over layered eggs and bacon.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.

I've made this recipe a couple of times. We just finished eating it and it was absolutely fabulous. This time I halved the recipe since there was only two of us. I had ham instead of bacon on hand, just less milk than called for (just enough to make a nice cheese sauce. Add a little milk, then a little cheese, repeat until cheese is gone). I also sauteed the onions and then added the ham in the pan to flavor up the ham. The adding of dijon mustard as suggested in another review topped everything off perfectly. There was no need for salt or pepper. It reminded us of eggs benedict. Delicious!

Tasted great but was REALLY soupy. Is it supposed to be like that?

Wonderful recipe! I'm bad though, I used half and half instead of milk because I wanted it nice and rich, and it was! :)

I had leftover ham which I substituted for the bacon. Good recipe to use up Easter leftovers!

Unusual and tasty breakfast dish! Add a little Dijon mustard to the sauce for zip, and buttered bread crumbs as a topping for crunch.

flavor was really great, however, mine turned out really soupy- even after cooking longer. Next time I'll try it with out hard boiling the eggs first.

Exceptional! I did add some cubed white bread that I toasted in the bacon grease. A variation of layering hash browns in the bottom would sound like a good idea too. But overall, definitely want to make this one again!
