Gourmet Eggs

One of those handy recipes that can be made the night ahead of a brunch on
Sunday or a holiday.  Recipe came from a cousin-in-law many years ago.

3/4 cups crushed cracker crumbs (Ritz is my fav)
3 tbsp melted butter
12 hard cooked eggs, sliced
12 strips crispy cooked bacon, crumbled
1 pint (500 gr) sour cream (make sure it does not have gelatin)
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp instant minced onion
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 cup shredded aged cheddar (or cheese of your choice)

Mix cracker crumbs and butter.  Sprinkle on bottom of baking dish (I use
an 8" x 12" pan).  Arrange sliced eggs over crumbs.  Mix together remaining
ingredients except cheese and spread over eggs.  Sprinkle cheese on top.
Cover dish and refrigerate overnight.  Heat oven to 350F and bake for
30minutes.  Garnish with more crumbled bacon if you wish.
