    tbsp butter

  • 3

    tbsp plain flour

  • 1-7/8

    cup hot vegetable or chicken stock

  • 2

    egg yolks

  • 1

    tsp Dijon mustard

  • pinch of ground mace

  • 2

Directions

Melt the butter and stir in the fiour, and cook over a moderate heat for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and gradually blend in the hot stock. Return to the heat and bring to the boil, stirring continuously until the sauce thickens. Simmer gently for 3-4 minutes. In a small bowl, blend the egg yolks with a little hot sauce. Return to the pan and cook over a very low heat for 1-2 minutes. Do not allow to boil. Finally stir in the flavourings and cheese. Season to taste. Serve with steamed broccoli, cauliflower or leeks.
