Recipe:

Paul's World-Famous Sausage/Egg Casserole

1 pound, browned & drained sausage, or boned & chopped wild game or tame game.
6 each, large eggs, hard boiled & sliced (preferably brown ones);
(or, make that about 9 to 12 bantam eggs).
12 oz., canned corn.
2 cups, milk.
1/4 cup, flour.
1/4 cup, margarine.
1/4 teaspoon, pepper.
1/4 teaspoon, garlic powder.
1/2 teaspoon, salt.
1 & 1/2 cups, soft bread cubes.

Cover bottom of a 8" x 8" x 2" high, greased casserole dish with 1 layer of egg slices (about half of the eggs).
On low heat, melt margarine in a sauce pan. Stir in flour, pepper, garlic powder and salt.
Add milk quickly & stir. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Should thicken in a few minutes.
Remove from heat. SEE, anybody can make a white sauce! Now blend in the corn and meat.
Dump the whole mess on top of the eggs in the casserole dish.
Even it out & cover with the remaining egg slices. Scatter bread cubes over the top.
Bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes. The cubes are browning and the edges are bubbling.
Let cool and enjoy the beverage of your choice as you admire your own handiwork.

Serve with a chilled, rare Chablis or a California White Zinfandel, and intellectual conversation...

Eggg Tip:

Most bantam eggs are 2/3 of a large egg.
If a recipe calls for 6 large eggs, then simply multiply the number of large egggs required by 1.50.
There!
