Step by Step Method
Preheat oven to 350º
In a 2-qt. saucepan
Melt the butter over medium-low heat.
Add the flour and cook, whisking constantly for 3 minutes.
Do not let the mixture brown.
Slowly whisk in the hot milk and bring just to a simmer,
Reduce the heat to low and cook
Whisking often, until the sauce has thickened to a creamy, gravy-like consistency and no longer tastes of raw flour, 6 to 8 minutes for a single batch, 10 to 12 minutes for a double batch.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the salt, pepper, and nutmeg ,to taste.
If not using right away, transfer to a bowl and press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the sauce to keep a skin from forming.
Plan to use the sauce within 30 minutes because it thickens if it’s left to sit for too long. If that should happen, add a little warm milk and whisk well to thin it.
In a greased Pam sprayed baking dish (8x8x2),
Place a layer of cracker crumbs.
Moisten well with 1/2 of cream sauce.
Next layer with 1/2 cheese and then a layer of grated pimento and top with layer of grated eggs. Repeat again being sure crumbs are well moistened.
Top with buttered crumbs and bake about 30 minutes.
No special items needed.
