Here's a twist on simple deviled eggs. Layering the eggs in a casserole gives a unique taste.


Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Mash yolks with mustard, mayonnaise, and pepper; refill whites. Combine White Sauce and cheese; stir over low heat until cheese melts. Crush potato chips slightly. Layer ingredients in one large or six small casseroles as follows: potato chips, eggs (cut side down), cheese sauce, potato chips, shrimp, cheese sauce, potato chips. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Garnish with additional shrimp, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

NOTE: Go easy on salt — the shrimp and potato chips contribute plenty.
