Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Hard-boil the eggs: bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the eggs, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Put the eggs into cold water until just cool enough to handle and then shell. (A trick for shelling hard-boiled eggs is to roll them with the palm of your hand on a hard surface to break up the shell and then peel them under a slow stream of running water.) Reserve the eggs in a bowl of warm water.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan or small frying pan over low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until tender but not coloured.
  3. Prepare the bchamel sauce: melt the butter in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat. Add the flour and whisk for about 2 minutes; do not allow it to colour. Whisk in the milk and bring to the boil, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Season with the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, whisking constantly and scraping the bottom and sides of the pan to prevent the sauce from sticking. Stir in the cooked onions and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat the grill. Slice the eggs 1 cm (0.4 inch) thick. Spread a thin layer of the bchamel sauce over the bottom of the gratin dish. Layer the egg slices over the bchamel sauce and coat with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese, then grill, turning the dish if necessary to colour evenly, until the top is golden brown. Serve immediately.
