We all have a food that we are comforted by. It was a childhood dish, so chances are, you haven’t had it in a while. Here’s your chance to make it and pass it down the family line.

I have a few comfort foods that my Mom made. I didn’t know until recently that most of the recipes were her comfort foods as a child!

My favorite is one that we ate for supper every Friday during Lent. It has no meat, but is very filling: Creamed Eggs on Toast. I came across my Mom’s handwritten recipe, so I started making it a few years ago. My husband loves it so we now have it about once a month.

It’s simple to make and an easy dinner. here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

6 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsp flour (may substitute 2tbsp rice flour for a GF recipe)
2 tbsp butter
2 dashes pepper
1 dash salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard

Take eggs and hard boil them. Dice and set aside in a medium sized bowl. In a small bowl combine flour salt, pepper and dry mustard. Set aside. In a small saucepan melt butter.  Turn the burner to medium low.  Slowly add small bowl of dry ingredients, stirring constantly. Add milk. Continue stirring until sauce thickens and bubbles slightly. Pop 6 slices of bread in the toaster. Toast. While waiting for toast to pop up, fold sauce into the eggs in the medium bowl. Do not stir, but gently fold to mix.  Get 3 plates from cupboard and place 2 pieces of toasted bread on each. Lightly butter on each. Cut toast in half. Spoon on creamed eggs.

There you have it! Creamed Eggs on Toast. My number one comfort food!
