Eggs A La Goldenrod

I don't know what "a la goldenrod" means in the food world, but I do know it must be French.


It must mean, "Eggs of the Yummy."

Yes. I'm sticking with that.

Growing up, my mom would make this comforting dish--boiled eggs stirred into a white sauce and served on toast-- on special mornings and sometimes on the weekends.

It's warm and delicious, and my husband and son love it just as much as I always did.

Make these eggs over the weekend and your family will thank you. Then you can thank me. And I'll thank my mama.

We'll overlook the weird name together.

Eggs A La Goldenrod
6-8 eggs, boiled and chopped
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. flour
1-1/2 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
French bread slices, toasted

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Then gradually add the flour, whisking constantly. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add the milk while constantly whisking. The sauce will thicken up pretty quickly. Salt and pepper to taste and stir in the chopped eggs. Serve hot over warm, toasted French bread.

Serves 4


  1. I thought my family was the only one that made that! Funny! Been eating it since I was a kid and LOVE it.

  2. Oh my goodness...never heard of it but it looks super yummy! I might have to try this a.s.a.p. I am always looking for a new way to do eggs. This is perfect! Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. Looks yummy! Fall always makes me want to cook!

  4. I've never seen anything like this. And that name is really kind of funny:) It looks really good, though!

  5. Yours has a much more glamorous name than our recipe, but we make this too! Delicious!! :)

  6. I just found your blog today and was having fun reading while the football playoff game is on. I came across this recipe and couldn't believe my eyes because this is what my mother made when I was little (I'm 53 now and my mother died 2 years ago). The last time I had it was the day they came home and told my mother my daddy had died at work... when I was 6. We called these Marshmallow Eggs even though they didn't have marshmallow in them at all. Thank you for posting this!
