  1. FOR THE SAUCE: In a saucepan, saute green pepper and onion in butter or margarine until tender. Stir in flour, horseradish mustard, spices and milk. Stir until mixture is thick and bubbly. Cover; keep sauce warm.
  2. In a lightly-greased skillet, boil 2-inches of water; reduce heat to simmer. Break 1 of the eggs into cup; carefully slide egg into simmering water.
