Prepare béchamel following our instructions.
Mix egg yolk with light cream and add this mixture to béchamel sauce, far from the heat. Stir and warm up quickly. At this point add Parmesan cheese, far from the heat. Season to taste with salt, only if necessary.
The sauce is ready.


This sauce is perfect with hard-boiled eggs and a great variety of fish. You can also use it with baked vegetables even if when you have to broil them.
