In Response to EGGS ALA GOLDEN ROD:
From what I have read this recipe was created in the late 1800's My Mom used to make this when we were kids.The egg yolks after being run through a sieve resemble Golden Rod pollen EGGS ALA GOLDEN ROD Makes 8 servings 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup flour salt and pepper to taste 1 quart milk 8 slices white bread, toasted 8 hard-cooked eggs 1 pinch paprika Directions Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour to make a roux, and cook for 10 minutes until the roux begins to lighten in color. Whisk in the milk, and bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 10 minutes more, whisking occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Separate the hard-cooked egg whites from the yolks. Roughly chop the whites and stir into the white sauce. Press the yolks through a mesh strainer and set aside. To serve, place a slice of toast on a plate, and ladle 1/2 cup of white sauce over top. Garnish with egg yolks and a sprinkle of paprika.
