You didn't put a qualifier on your "any".  (or I missed it)

If you want a Raspberry Pi class board, the BeagleBone Black has a real 
Ethernet, but only one.

If you need 2 real Ethernets, the cheapest approach is probably to get an old 
PC with PCI slots and add a PCI Ethernet card.

There is a whole class of low power mother boards targeted at the embedded 
market.  A few of them have multiple Ethernets - goof for building firewalls. 
 I haven't found any low cost ones.

Soekris has various boards with multiple Ethernets and no display.
