Recipe by CindiJ

At a breakfast meeting earlier this year we were served a breakfast casserole with a side of Chive Cream as an optional garnish. This stuff took the basic breakfast casserole over the top!! I begged the chef to share his recipe (to no avail) and have been searching ever since. This is pretty close to what I remember. Chill time is cook time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer – or in a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer – whip the crème fraîche until light and airy. Stir in the buttermilk, garlic, chives, lemon zest and juice. Season with one-fourth teaspoon salt and a couple grinds of black pepper, or to taste.
  2. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
  3. This will keep, refrigerated, for one day.
