okay sooo this is (probably) my last christmas-related post (i just had soo many pictures!), but i just wanted to share this recipe with you.
these eggs au gratin are a tradition in our family. we've been making them for christmas since i can remember. of course, they're not strictly for the holidays... they're perfectly yummy any time. maybe you can even make them for the new year!
put it this way... if you like cheese and eggs, these are definitely your thing.
**also note- we always double the recipe... so if you're planning on making it with the specified amounts, you'll probably need more than one baking dish (we used the pie dish seen in the last picture to cover the overlflow.)

2/3 cup flour
4 cups hot watter
2 cups milk
4 teaspoons instant chicken bouillon
