National Lobster Newburg Day
From All Recipes
Traditionally Lobster Newburg is served over buttered toast wedges, but I served mine over cooked whole wheat spaghetti with steamed asparagus.
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons dry sherry or madeira
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch ground nutmeg
3/4 pound cooked lobster meat, broken into chunks
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks and heavy cream until well blended. Set aside. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the egg yolk mixture and sherry. Cook, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Do not boil.
- Remove from heat, and season with salt, cayenne, and nutmeg. Add lobster. Return pan to low heat, and cook gently until heated through. Serve hot over slices of buttered toast.
