Creamed Eggs On Toast – AKA Eggs Ala Goldenrod

My, oh my! Creamed Eggs On Toast (Mom called it Eggs Ala Goldenrod) is a walk down memory lane.

I really don’t think I would have ever encountered nor thought about this dish had I not been looking for quick and easy Thanksgiving breakfast ideas!

In all honesty, I had forgotten about this childhood fave for probably 40 years.

I did it for a quick and easy breakfast this morning and it was everything I remember my mom cooking decades ago.

This is one of those stupid-easy dishes that sometimes get overlooked. So comforting and warming both to body and soul.

I will not forget about this dish again! It will remain on both my breakfast and dinner menu list.

Servings: 4
Calories: 195 kcal

  4. Remove from the heat and add the chopped egg whites.

  6. Lay slices of toast on individual plates and spoon on the creamed eggs. Sprinkle with the chopped egg yolks and paprika.

Creamed Eggs On Toast Tips

You can use the whole egg in the sauce but I like to do it like Mom and keep the yolks separate and then crumble them over the top.

Mom called it eggs golden rod. Brings back great memories.

Mom also served it over plain toasted white bread but you can vary the bread for even more interest and taste. Sourdough bread comes to mind for some reason.

You can also add a bit of dry mustard to the cream sauce for added flavor and sprinkle paprika on top for color.

How to Cook Grits – The Best Southern Grits Recipe

I really can’t remember when I didn’t know how to cook grits! Musta’ been a really little fellow when I learned.

Something I do know is the best southern grits recipe starts with the grits.

What Are Grits?

I’ve seen the question “what are grits” asked a lot. The answer is always “ground corn”. Well that’s true. But it’s not the whole truth.

Southern grits are made from corn that is first made into hominy. The hominy is then dried and ground into hominy grits.

Southern grits are hominy grits. Plain ground corn is polenta!

The name “grits” actually was derived from the size of the grind!

How To Cook Grits

Cooking grits couldn’t be easier. Just boil water, add the grits, lower the heat to simmer, and cook for about 25 to 30 minutes stirring occasionally. These are the directions on the package!

For creamy grits substitute some or all of the water with milk. Use cream if you like but to me cream overpowers the flavor of the grits.

Almost Pennsylvania Dutch Scrapple

Authentic Pennsylvania Dutch Scrapple is a dish popular in Pennsylvania but eaten all over. It’s made from bits and pieces of pork that are leftover from butchering a hog! “Scraps”

 

This version is not authentic even though it is a great example of stretching meat to go as far as it can go.

It has the seasonings of scrapple but the meat is breakfast sausage and has far more appeal!

Not quite Pennsylvania Dutch but a great imitation made with breakfast sausage. 

Course: Breakfast
Servings: 6
Calories: 308 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 lb bulk pork sausage
  • 2 1 ⁄2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup cold water
Instructions
  1. Crumble pork sausage in a frying pan; add 4 cups water and heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cook for 20 minutes. Then drain meat, reserving 3 cups stock.
  2. Add salt and sage to stock, bring to boiling.
  3. Combine cornmeal and 1 cup of cold water. Gradually add stock, stirring constantly. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. Add sausage, stir it all together and pour into loaf pan. Refrigerate overnight.
  5. Next morning slice and fry until set.
Recipe Notes

Cooking time does not include refrigeration over night.

 

How To Serve Pennsylvania Dutch Scrapple

The best way to serve scrapple is to pan-fry it. First, slice the scrapple block into thin slices.

The next step is to put the slices in a pan. Leave a little room between each slice otherwise they will stick together. There is no need to grease or oil the pan as there is enough grease in the scrapple for it not to burn.

Now just leave it alone! Allow it to get nice and crispy and brown. You can tell when they are done on the bottom side, as you will see the edges start to brown.

Then, flip to the other side and leave it alone until that side gets nice and crispy and brown.

Once the scrapple is brown on both sides it’s ready to eat!

Scrapple is great with eggs cooked to your liking and is also perfect with pancakes or waffles.

Enjoy!

Easy Breakfast Casserole – Go-To Breakfast

I love this Easy Breakfast Casserole recipe. This is my go-to breakfast recipe for weekends and I love how flexible it is–I’ve used bacon, sausage, and ham.

 

Sometimes I like to add in sauteed mushrooms, and I’ve also added extra onion. The flexibility is endless!

It’s almost embarrassing how simple this recipe is – but oh so tasty!

I have to admit, I was skeptical about the Stove Top Chicken Dressing but it was a fabulous addition!! No one could figure out the secret ingredient. It’s the stuffing that gives it a great flavor.

The leftovers, if there are any, are great reheated for lunch!

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

I made this Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole for brunch and what a hit! I used sharp cheddar cheese to give it more flavor.

 

So good with the chunks of ham. Great for leftover ham but worth buying ham for!

A wonderful way to have a relaxing brunch for friends or family. I like to serve this casserole with grits and fresh fruit.

You can also vary the ingredients to suit your family’s taste. Next time, I think I will add some onions to the ham or sausage as well as some green chili.

Fun for serving large crowds an elegant looking meal.

So easy! You can cook the bacon ahead of time, especially if you are preparing several. That is what makes it a time saver.

You can add different things to them also. Finely (or not) chopped tomatoes, peppers, scallions, mushrooms etc. A little bit of grated cheese on top.
