Ingredients

    Hard boiled Egg Whites in reduced fat cream sauce.

Directions

This is a "better for you" version of a childhood favorite of mine. I have eliminated a huge amount of the fat by eliminating about 2/3 of the butter and all of the egg yolks. Normally, a roux would start with a 50/50 mix of fat and flour, here I start with a 1/2 ratio, then add more flour in later so the mix is about 1/4. You can't add all the flour in the beginning, otherwise no amount of stirring will get rid of the lumps...

Hard boil the eggs, and discard the yolks to save fat. Make a roux with the butter and about half of the flour (or a little less), then add milk slowly. Once you have a thick paste, start sprinking extra flour in while you are slowly adding in the remaining milk. Whisk constantly. Once all the milk is added and the sauce is thick, add the egg whites. Pour the eggs over some torn up pieces of toast.
