We had this for dinner tonight with a side salad. It was a good, well written recipe that resulted in a rich, but subtle dish. I think it could be improved with a little Tabasco, Worchestershire and a green onion. I didn't enjoy coming across tiny wet spots of cream cheese and would sub light cream for that in the future. I used real egg yolks.
