This creamy egg dish is comfort food at its finest: sliced cooked eggs are covered with Mornay sauce and grilled until the sauce is golden brown and bubbly. Serve on hot buttered toast as a snack, or with cooked rice and a green salad as a main course.

I sliced the eggs and layered them over toast points, covered with the mornay sauce, and then broiled. This could be served for either brunch or dinner. The only time-consuming part is making the mornay sauce, and that's why I've ranked this as moderately difficult. Very nice, will make this again. - 20 May 2013
