Hard-boiled eggs are paired with creamy white gravy and buttered toast in this old-school Southern dish. It's just the thing for Easter breakfast.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour; whisk until nutty and golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in milk; bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens to consistency of gravy, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and cover to keep warm.
Cut eggs in half. Remove yolks and press through a medium-mesh sieve, or mince them. Chop whites; stir into bechamel. Toast and butter bread. Divide bechamel mixture evenly among toasts; sprinkle evenly with yolks. Top with chives, paprika, and pepper. Serve immediately.
If the bechamel gets too stiff before it's slathered on the toast, just rewarm it over low heat.
