Easy Like Sunday Morning
If there's one thing that my friend Timm knows how to do, it's making a creamy white sauce! Timm and Faith came down this weekend and Sunday morning we found ourselves wondering what to make for breakfast. Matt and Timm went to the store and when they came back, they had the makings of a delectable Sunday brunch. What started as the standard breakfast fare, turned in to being a hearty and delicious breakfast dish.
Timm told us the story of his aunt making creamed eggs on toast for her large family because it was delicious and economical at the same time. She was definitely onto something! Timm simply made his famous white sauce and then added some cheese, hard boiled eggs, ham, salt, and pepper. Meanwhile, Matt toasted some sourdough bread and Timm proceeded to ladle that creamy goodness right over the toast. He served this with fresh fruit and maple sausage. Now, my friends, we could have stopped there, but I had been dying to try PW's Monkey Bread and figured that a few more carbs couldn't hurt. The bread was easy to throw together and it gave me a chance to bring my bundt pan out of retirement after a traumatic baking experience back in the year 2000. It was time and much to my surprise the bread came out of the pan with no trouble. We were lucky to have another lovely meal with good friends and tasty food.
