Eggs a la Goldenrod:

When I first saw this recipe, I thought it was interesting. I didn't think it sounded necessarily bad, but I didn't really expect to be trying it any time soon either (I have no clue where the name came from!)
Tonight, around 5:30 or so, I realized that we were missing a few key ingredients for what I had planned to make for dinner (it's a good thing I picked up on this early in the day, right?!)!! 
So, I needed to come up with something quick, and someone shouted out that waffles sounded good. They did sound good, but we had nothing to put with them that would make them a little more "dinner" worthy or healthy, if that's possible!! 
This recipe instantly came to mind (not necessarily for "health"), so I decided to give it a try.
When people started realizing what I was doing, they weren't impressed!
But after trying one bite, everyone loved it!! I was so shocked!!
It's so different, yet so yummy!!
I hope you take a few minutes and try it for yourself!
Let me know what you think!!
8 hard-boiled eggs
6 tblsp. butter
1/2 tsp. onion powder
4 tblsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
3 cups milk
Separate the yolk from the white of all the eggs. Lightly chop the whites and set aside. Place the yolks in a bowl, and using a fork, mash the yolks. They will just be basically crumbly. Set aside.
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Combine onion powder, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Whisk into melted butter and stir until smooth. Gradually add milk, and whisk until mixture begins to bubble and thicken. Cook and stir until desired consistency is reached (we like it not too thin, not too thick, but you can make it however you prefer. The longer you cook it, the thicker it gets).
Stir the whites of the eggs into the sauce.
To serve, spoon the sauce over toast, biscuits or waffles. Sprinkle with some of the egg yolks!
-This would probably be good with some cooked, crumbled sausage in the sauce as well.
-As you can see from the picture, my dad sprinkled bacon-bits on his and said it was good.
-We served it over waffles (click here for the recipe), but the original recipe served it over toast.
