FLAKE salmon and combine it in small bowl with tomato sauce, 3 hard-boiled egg yolks, 1/8 teaspoon salt, black pepper and parsley. Remove remaining egg yolks from egg halves. Discard or reserve for other use. Stuff egg whites with salmon mixture, forming a slight mound. Refrigerate stuffed eggs.

MELT butter in small saucepan. Stir in flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and white pepper. Gradually add evaporated milk and broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture just becomes thickened. Cool for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

LINE large plate with wax paper. Carefully dip stuffed eggs in white sauce, coating on all sides. Place beaten eggs on prepared plate. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until the sauce sets. Dip coated eggs in beaten eggs; cover with breadcrumbs. Freeze for 10 minutes.

ADD oil to about 1 1/2-inch depth in large, deep skillet; heat to 350° F. Fry eggs carefully just until eggs are brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

NOTE: Use leftover white sauce over pasta or vegetables for a delicious weekday meal.
