EGGS LA GOLDEN:This is an interesting recipe that was given to me by an Amish family in St. Ignatius, Montana.  Most Amish families there do own hens that give them an ample supply of fresh eggs.  The eggs find their way into numerous dishes, including this one.  The Amish cook who gave it to me called it “Eggs La Golden” and, boy, the photo seems to bear that color out!:). Check out the recipe!

  1. The color of the egg yolks in the picture is wonderful- so different than the yolks of supermarket eggs.

  2. Eggs Goldenrod have been around for years. They were a favorite Saturday morning breakfast at our home over 60 years ago, and we live in the Pacific Northwest! I’ve found similar recipes in old cookbooks. The eggs were also part of our post-Easter meals as I always found a bunch of colored eggs at the Church egg hiding.
