HARD BOILING EGGS:

  1. Place the eggs in a pan and cover with cold water.  Place the pan on the stove over high heat and wait until the water starts boiling.  Turn off the heat and cover the pan.  After 15 minutes remove the pan from the stove and place in the sink.  Run cold water for 3-4 minutes until the eggs are cool to the touch then peel.

CASSEROLE:

  2. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.

WHITE SAUCE:
