Eggs Goldenrod

This recipe has been passed down in my family for generations.  It is a staple for Easter breakfast but it's delicious anytime extra eggs are available.  I made a smaller batch, but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.  The basis of this recipe is a simple roux.

Eggs Goldenrod
Makes 2 large portions

4 hard boiled eggs
3 tablespoons of butter
3-4 tablespoons of flour
~1 1/2 cups of milk
salt to taste
white pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder (optional)
4 slices of toast
chives for garnish (optional)

Peel the hard boiled eggs and separate the yolk from the white.   Put the yolks in a small bowl and use a fork to break into small pieces.  Coarsely chop the whites.  In a saucepan heat the butter until melted and bubbly then slowly add the flour until it makes a thick paste with the butter.  Add the milk, a splash at a time, stirring until the milk is completely incorporated into the butter and flour.  Stop adding milk when it reaches the desired consistency (thick but not too pasty).  Then add the salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Stir in the egg whites.  Serve on top of toast with a sprinkle of egg yolks and chives.
