Golden Toast

Every year for Easter, since my mother was young, she has been eating "Golden Toast". Golden Toast was the invention that came from my grandpa getting tired of the kids coloring 3 dozen eggs for Easter and then eventually throwing 2 dozen eggs away. It is basically a cheese sauce with eggs over toast, a fun and tasty tradition!

You start off with about a dozen hard boiled eggs. (They are a lot of fun if they are colored because sometimes the whites end up being fun colors.)
Peel the boiled eggs and separate the whites from the yolks.
Cut up the whites in to bite sized pieces and set aside.
Using a fork or a food processor, turn the yolks in to a crumbled consistency. Set aside.

You will now need to make a basic, medium consistency, white sauce.
Melt about 4 TBSP of butter in a medium sized saucepan.
Add about 1/4 cup of flour to melted butter and 1 tsp of mustard and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
Slowly whisk in about 2 cups of milk. Stir over medium to medium- low heat until this has reached a medium thick consistency.
Add 1 to 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, depending on your preference. I like it CHEESY!
Stir in egg white pieces.
Once everything is thoroughly heated, ladle over a piece of toast. Top with a TBSP or two of crumbled egg yolk. Enjoy.

(This makes enough for my family of 6 to each have two to three pieces of toast.)
