- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons curry
- 6 tablespoons cream
- Salt and white pepper
- 12 hardboiled eggs, sliced
- Pimento strips
- To make cream sauce, melt butter in top of double boiler. Add flour and cook,
stirring with wooden spoon, for about 2 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add milk slowly, stirring. Return to heat and stir constantly
until sauce thickens. Mix curry powder and cream, and add to thickened sauce. Add
salt and pepper to taste.
- Place sliced eggs in buttered casserole and top with pimento strips. Pour cream
sauce over all, lifting eggs gently so sauce reaches bottom of casserole. Bake at
400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Should be served immediately.
Serves 6 to 8.
This should be served over rice with some or all of the usual curry accompaniments:
chutney, shredded coconut, chopped peanuts, raisins.
This is a delicious brunch dish and is very good served with a broiled tomato,
French bread and a fresh fruit compote.
