Egg Gravy on Toast
My husband used to ask for frequently, my gravy eggs. This is simply hard boiled eggs cut up in a white gravy and served over toast broken into pieces. I used to make 4-6 cups of white sauce (1 Tablespoon of flour mixed with melted butter per cup of milk) and a dozen hard boiled eggs. I would cut the eggs up and add to the gravy when it was thickened--salt and pepper to taste. My family craved this and it helped stretch my food dollars.

Easter Egg Safety
Use these tips for Easter egg safety.

Keep fresh eggs refrigerated until it’s time to cook them.

Wash your hands thoroughly before handling eggs at every step of the process: cooking, cooling, dyeing and hiding. Egg shells are porous and let bacteria penetrate, especially after cooking.

Cook the eggs until both the yolk and white are firm, not runny.

Refrigerate hard-cooked eggs in their cartons until ready to dye them. Do not eat hard-cooked eggs that have been out of the refrigerator for more than 2 hours (1 hour in temperatures 90° or higher).

Don’t color or hide eggs with cracked shells.

Use only food coloring or food-grade egg dyes to color eggs. Refrigerate eggs in their cartons immediately after dyeing.

When hiding eggs, avoid areas where they could come in contact with dirt, pets, insects, wild animals, birds, reptiles or lawn chemicals. Never hide cracked eggs.

Total time for hiding and hunting eggs should not exceed 2 hours (1 hour in temperatures 90° or higher). Refrigerate eggs immediately after they are found.

If you wish to use dyed hard-cooked eggs as a centerpiece or other decoration, cook extra eggs just for this purpose and discard them after use.

Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes, remove tops or peels from the pan and let stand overnight to produce a darker color, rinse and dry. Using packaged dyes: Put eggs in saucepan and cover with cold water; add vinegar.

Yesterday's online recipes were awesome.  The side dishes were easy to make and just what I was needing for Easter.  Thank you so much for the recipes.  I especially liked the Macaroni and Cheese Recipe, Balsamic Glazed Carrots Recipe, and Easter Broccoli Casserole Recipe.


In the April 2, 2014 newsletter Janis in Texas requested a recipe for homemade chocolate topping for ice cream. This one did not come from the newsletter but is one I have had for many, many years and is called Fudge Nut Sauce. The recipe makes 2 cups and says that “it hardens on the ice cream like the topping on a dipped cone”. The nuts can be eliminated if you don’t care for them. Since this recipe predates the use of microwaves in our homes, it is made with a double boiler. I feel sure that today a microwave could be used successfully to make it and to reheat it.

Fudge Nut Sauce Recipe

1/2 lb. butter or margarine
1 (12 oz.) package chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans (6 – 8 oz.)

In a double boiler over hot water, melt butter or margarine and chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Stir in nuts. Serve hot. May be refrigerated and reheated.
