Eggs Goldenrod is a classic Southern dish that pairs hard-boiled eggs with buttered toast and scrumptious white gravy. It’s the perfect treat to start your Easter morning.
To make this dish, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 4 to 5 tbsp. of unsalted butter
- ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
- 3 cups of whole milk
- 6 hard-boiled eggs (peeled)
- 6 slices of white bread
- Salt and ground pepper to taste
- Smoked paprika and chopped chives for serving
In a medium saucepan, melt your butter over medium to high heat. Then, add flour. Make sure to whisk the flour until it turns a beautiful golden color (around one to two minutes).
Next, add the milk and bring it to a slow boil. Make sure to whisk consistently until the mixture thickens to a gravy-like consistency. Once you’re happy with the texture, season your gravy with salt and pepper, then set it aside to cool.
To make your toast, cut your boiled eggs in half. Remove all the yolks and mince them in a large bowl. Then, chop the egg whites and stir them into your gravy.
While you’re preparing this, toast your bread slices and butter them. Plate the toast, drizzle with the white gravy sauce, sprinkle your yolk, and top it off with chives, pepper, and paprika. Serve immediately.
Orange Glazed Salmon
If you’re looking for easy recipes for Easter that perfectly combine sweet and citrusy flavors, there’s nothing better than this orange glazed salmon. It takes less than 30 minutes to make, and you’ll have yourself a delicious Easter dinner.
For the ingredients, you’ll need:
- 2 tbsp. of avocado oil
- 4 salmon filets
- 1 orange (juiced)
- 2 tbsp. of honey
- 2 tbsp. of tamari
- 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
- 1 tsp. of finely chopped thyme
- ½ tsp. of arrowroot flour
- 1 tsp. of water
- Salt and pepper to taste
Pat the salmon filets dry with a paper towel and season them with salt and pepper. Then, heat the avocado oil on medium heat and cook the salmon for three to four minutes per side.
While your salmon cooks, make a paste by combining water with the arrowroot flour.
Once the salmon is done, remove it from the pan and turn the heat to low. Saute the minced garlic and add the rest of the ingredients. Whisk everything for two minutes until it thickens.
Finally, add the cooked salmon back into the pan and glaze the sauce over it. Serve with your choice of side.
