Heritage Recipe

Grandmother Gertrude's Egg Casserole

1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese or Monterey Jack
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon basil
6 to 8 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley, or judicious amounts of whatever fresh herbs are in the garden
1/4 pound bacon or sausage - sauteed, drained, and crumbled
1/3 cup dried bread crumbs (buttered, optional)

Make a roux with butter and flour; add milk, herbs, and cheese. Then in a casserole dish put a layer of eggs, bacon, parsley, and sauce. Repeat. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Cook uncovered in 350-degree oven for 30 minutes. This dish benefits greatly from the homemade bacon and sausage we get from our local butcher, but we've also used vacuum-packed linguisa to good effect.

Serves: 6

This is my grandmother's recipe from Rockford, Illinois. Whenever somebody was getting married and you were going to have a fancy brunch for them, you made my Grandmother Gertrude's egg casserole.
