Yield 1 1/2 quarts


  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped, cooked seafood (cod, haddock, shrimp, lobster, or combination of seafood)
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream sherry
  • 3 hard-cooked egg yolks, grated

How to Make It

  1. Melt 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter in top of a double boiler over simmering water; add flour, and stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add half-and-half and milk. Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.

  2. Sauté mushrooms in remaining butter in a small skillet until tender. Stir sautéed mushrooms into sauce. Add seafood, chopped egg, salt, pepper, lemon rind, and sugar; stir well. Cook over simmering water 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
