Anglesey Eggs Recipe


If you have never tasted our Anglesey Eggs Recipe then now is definitely the time to serve it for breakfast one morning. Served in a soup-like bowl on a bed of mashed potatoes and hard-boiled eggs with a thick, cheesy and creamy sauce and some thinly sliced leeks for flavor.

I sprinkle a few bread crumbs over to bake a crispy topping and serve it with some crispy bacon strips on the side.

Steps to make Anglesey Eggs Recipe


Preheat oven and prepare baking dish


Preheat oven to 200 °C/400 °F/gas 6 and generously grease an ovenproof baking dish with butter.


Cook leeks


In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt 1 ounce of butter and add 2 large, thinly sliced leeks. Season with generous amounts of salt and pepper to taste and cook for about 5 minutes until tender but not burnt.


Add flour


Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in 1 tablespoon of flour. Cook while stirring continuously for about 2 minutes.


Add milk


Continue stirring and slowly pour in 1 cup of milk. Continue cooking for about 2 minutes until thick and creamy then reduce heat to simmer for about 5 minutes.


Add cheese


Stir in 1½ ounces of grated Cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.


Prepare mashed potato layer


Add a layer of mashed potatoes and spread evenly to cover the entire base of the baking dish.


Add eggs


Place boiled egg quarters over the mashed potatoes and gently press them in.


Add sauce and breadcrumbs


Pour prepared cream sauce over the eggs and mashed potatoes and finally top with 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs and the remaining 1½ ounces of grated Cheddar cheese.




Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until bubbling in the center and golden brown on top.



Serve hot and enjoy!

Amazing little meal for one or two people, the cheddar cheese goes fantastic with this too.

Nathalie Kaczkowski

Added more seasoning to mine cause I felt like it needed a bit of a kick, therefore there was some chili powder and a drop of hot sauce that i mixed into it.

Milani Gefre

Great for breakfast or an afternoon snack, it goes well with anything and keeps you full cause of the potatoes and eggs.

Royal Lendo

Yummy and simple to make its an affordable recipe and doesn't require much knowledge of cooking so it's great for people like myself who are lazy and never cook enough to know how to make the pro meals.

Nya Kley

Tasty and unique dish for sure, I never imagined it would taste this good when it's such a simple meal.

Meera Fuell

Not going to be adding any leeks in this next time because it makes it taste only like leeks, the flavor is overbaring.


Well done! Verified!
