Buddy Friday - a couple of recipes....sort of!!

Now why I say sort of, is there is no actual recipe.

Egg Pie:


Hard Boiled Eggs
Mashed Potatoes
Cheese Sauce

Cheese Sauce Recipe:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup marg
2 cups milk
2 cups grated cheese
1 tbsp mustard
salt and pepper

Melt marg, whisk in flour and cook for a minute. Whisk in milk and mustard, and whisk until thickened. Add grated cheese, and salt and pepper, stir until melted.

Cut hard boiled eggs in half, and place in casserole dish with yolk side up. Pour cheese sauce on top, and place mashed potatoes on top. Place in an oven for half an hour until all heated through. Or if its all hot, place under grill to brown the top of the potatoes. I have frozen this casserole with no problems.

Apple Berry Sauce.

Pack of reduced apples, peeled, cored and sliced. Pop into a saucepan with a little water and some frozen berries, mine were mixed berries. Cook on stove until the apples are soft, five to ten minutes. Place in a blender and puree to the consistency that you like. I personally don't add any sugar but you can if you want.

The reason I decided to post these recipes as both are super cheap to make and can be doubled, trebled or whatever. You can't go wrong with either, and in the case of the egg pie, if you have leftover mashed potatoes, this is a way of using them up.

Hello Gill
Haven't thought about Egg Pie for years - I used to make it for our children when they were little. I also used to put ass a tin of Baked Beans which stretched it out a bit. They loved it then wonder if they'd eat it now lol
Good to hear you are slowing sorting out some parts of the house
Take care

WIll definately be trying out the egg and mashed potato pie this weekend Gill. Will let you know how I get on. I'm already starting to think of variations, LOL.

The egg pie is certainly interesting. I would never have thought of putting it with mashed potatoes.

The apple-berry thing sounded delish.

It looks like your home is taking shape. Wow, it has been a lot of work for you both. Don't forget to sit down occasionally and rest.

That egg pie sounds so easy! I always associated it with pastry which made it a bit of a chore, but mashed potato eases the burden. (Most cooking is a burden to me!)

Oooooh, this all sounds so good. I can't wait to try it. Especially the AppleBerry Sauce...yummy! Thank you, Gil.
