Bean and Egg Au Gratin

1 lb Shelled lima beans
3 Hard-boiled eggs; sliced
1/4 c Butter
6 tb Wholewheat flour
2 c Milk
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tb Fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 c Grated cheddar cheese

Cook the beans in boiling salted water until just tender; drain. Place half the beans in a greased ovenproof dish and place the eggs on top. Cover with the remaining beans.

Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook gently, stiring, to make a roux. Remove from the heat and gradually add the milk, stirring. Return to the heat and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the beans and sprinkle on the breadcrumbs and cheese. Dot with the remaining butter, place in a preheated hot oven (435F) and cook for 15 minutes until golden brown.:
