Makes 6 servings
3 eggs yolk
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated
2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
2 tablespoons butter real, cut in small pieces
3/4 cup chicken broth hot or bouillon
1 teaspoon parsley minced fresh
1 teaspoon chives minced fresh or green onion
(2 ) 9-ounce packages frozen french style green beans cooked and drained
2 tablespoons butter real
In a blender container place egg yolks, cheese and lemon juice; cover and blend at high speed for 1 minute (if you don't have a blender, you can also use a stand mixer for this.) While blender is at high speed add butter; add chicken broth or bouillon in a slow stream and blend until smooth and creamy. Add parsley and chives or green onion; and set aside.
In a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat cook beans in butter for 2 to 3 minutes; reduce heat to low. Add sauce; cook and stir until very thick (do not bring to a boil or the sauce will separate). Serve immediately.
* Or use 1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, French-sliced, cooked and drained.
Garnish with Almond slivers, or make your own homemade croutons to go on top.
