Eggs A La Goldenrod

Please sit with me by my cozy fire on this frigid day! I am having one of my all-time favorite breakfast, lunch or dinner meals that I learned in my first year of college. For my freshman year I went to St. Mary of the Springs,  which later changed it's name to Ohio Dominican College,  before transferring to Ohio State University.   I still have the "Laboratory Manual of  Foods For The Family" that we used, and I still use it.

My friend, Michele, sent me this beautiful teacup several years ago, that I love using during this time of the year.  

I have the egg dish on a matching plate that Michele sent, also.  

My nephew sent me this box of tea for Christmas and they are all exceptional black teas.  I was hesitant to try the Earl Grey teas, of which there are two, because I've never been a fan.  What I discovered is that I must've been trying Earl Grey teas that were not my cup of tea (or brand!).  I LOVE the ones included in this set.  I've been using my handheld frother and making tea lattes to my hearts content during our cold weather.

Eggs A La Goldenrod

Eggs A La Goldenrod

This recipe comes from my Food For The Family Laboratory Manual from my freshmen year in college. It is so comforting!


  • 3 eggs
  • For the Medium White Sauce:
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. milk


  1. Place eggs in medium saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Remove pan from heat, cover & let sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, fill a medium bowl with 1 qt. water a & tray of ice cubes. Transfer eggs to ice bath. Let sit for 5 minutes. Tap eggs all over against the counter to crack surface & gently roll back & forth. Peel from the air pocket end. Set aside.
  3. Make the white sauce:
  4. Melt butter in saucepan. Add the flour & salt & stir until smooth.
  5. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, stirring. Continue cooking for 5 minutes over low heat.
  6. Chop 3 hard-cooked coarsely, saving out the yolk of one egg.
  7. Combine the chopped hard-cooked egg with the cooked white sauce.
  8. Serve over toast. Grate or force the saved-out yolk through a sieve over the white sauce/egg mixture.


You can add a little cheddar cheese to the white sauce if you wish. I like to add freshly ground pepper, too.

I am always so grateful to be included to attend anything for my grandchildren.  Cissy received her "ropes" at an Academic Award ceremony for her Junior year.  When the students graduate, they wear these ropes on their graduation day over their gown.  

Thank you for your visit!  xo


  1. Thanks for the recipe!! It looks SO good!
    You girls are all, beautiful!

  2. Love your history, Kitty. Your egg recipe sounds good, but are those eggs actually hard cooked in just 10 min? Seems like they'd be softer. Congratulations to Cissy on her academics. Y'all three look so cute! You do not look like a grandma, and your daughter does not look like Cissy's mom! Good genes!

  3. I put scrambled eggs with cheese on toast for a quick meal, it's hard to beat eggs on toast, so satisfying! Great photo of you and your girls!

  4. I've never heard of this recipe. I look forward to trying it soon. Lovely post! Have a great week. Hope your temps are warming up too. XO

  5. Kitty, your eggs dish looks so interesting and so nice that you still use the cookbook. The tea sounds so nice. I love that photo of you, your daughter, and granddaughter. Kitty, I hope you stay warm and enjoy the week.

  6. Kitty, the egg dish looks delicious. The teacup/saucer is beautiful for this time of year. I am glad to know you now like Earl Grey and enjoying a latte. Happy Monday!

  7. Hi Kitty! What a fun post to see your wonderful wee brunch set-up. The egg dish sounds heavenly and is total comfort food for sure. Going to try and make that soon.

    I am so pleased to see you're enjoying your china trio. Grats to Cissy! She's grown much too fast! Kids, please slow down!!!! ♥♥♥

  8. That looks lovely, and delicious. I'm a sucker for anything with eggs. Stay warm, it's soooo cold here!!

  9. Such a pretty teacup to sip from by your fireplace Kitty! I love that you still (and use!) your "Laboratory Manual of Foods For The Family". I think any meal with eggs is comforting in cold weather. I agree with Rita about your photo and Michele…Cissy’s growing up way too fast! Stay warm ♥

  10. Beautiful post, it warmed my heart! Congrats to Cissy!

  11. I love that you still have your freshman year of college cookbook! I've never had eggs served this way but it sounds delicious and comforting on a chilly day. We have finally had a break from the frigid temps and hope you have some warmer weather too! Love the pic of you and your 'girls'. I remember the ropes :) I think we still have them in a closet.

  12. I did not know that Creamed Eggs on Toast is called Eggs Goldenrod. I do love them that way. Very satisfying in the cold weather. You and your girls look lovely. Your vest looks great on you. I remember my three children graduating with their "cords", we called them.

  13. Glad you found an Earl Grey blend that you like. I am a fan of the Cream Earl Grey.

    I finally got a handheld frother lather and couldn't believe I waited that long!

  14. Thanks for the egg recipe!! I'm going to make it! What a beautiful photo of you girls. Have a great rest of the week.

  15. I just bought a frother recently and have yet to find the time to figure out how to really use it! The egg dish looks so yummy! Thank you for sharing, sweet friend. It was so nice to visit with you today.
