Using Up Easter Eggs – Ham & Cheese Style!
8 hard boiled Easter Eggs!
4 slices cooked ham, cut in thin strips
1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1 tablespoon butter, melted
seasonings to taste
3 cups thin white sauce
(To make White Sauce: scald 1 pint of milk. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Add half a teaspoon of salt, 4 tablespoons of flour, and let cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Add the milk little by little, stirring gently until it boils. Let it boil for 3 minutes.)
Mix hard-boiled eggs with the white sauce. Mix ham with the eggs, seasonings and sauce. Place in a baking or pudding dish. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Pour the melted butter on the top. Bake in moderate oven for about 10 minutes, until a nice brown crust is formed.
