Notes from the contributor, Peter Dean:
Here is the original recipe, which came out of one of Mom’s church cookbooks. Truly, this stuff is remarkable if properly made. People who don’t like broccoli will love it…and call me wild, but I believe you could spice it up by adding bacon bits…. and by bits I mean complete slices…..
Seriously, I like to add about a teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce to this recipe, and I find the slivered almonds are not required…instead, place a couple of slices of bacon on the top.
Also, two things to remember:
Once you start making the sauce, it needs continual stirring. It’s the reason we have kids…..
When it comes to adding the eggs, have some care. People throw eggs into boiling mixtures, and eggs do not react well to that kind of shock. Instead, ladle some sauce into the egg and stir it up. This will heat the egg a little more gently and prevent it from scrambling itself. Once it is nicely mixed up, throw that in the sauce and keep stirring!
It is the kind of thing you can throw random spices into, and it usually has a good affect. You can make it ahead of time, and then throw it in the oven. And I have made it in a foil container and cooked it on the BBQ before too, and that works. Like Most egg dishes, do not overcook this bad boy.
Corn Liquid = When you open the can, drain the liquid into a measuring cup. It will not be enough, so add water to make up the difference. By the way, out here this is called “Corn Goo”… I love the country.
Hope you enjoy this, it is an amazing dish to support anything you grill.
