Cream of Garlic Sauce With Horseradish

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ValkyrieQueen

To serve with boiled dinners, fish or chicken, over boiled potatoes. This may be prepared in advance. Set aside off heat and float a spoonful of cream over the surface of the sauce to prevent a skin from forming. The original recipe calls for 1+ tablespoon of horseradish (add to taste). Just before serving, stir in the herbs and pour into a warmed sauce dish for presentation.

I do appreciate being able to whip up a great tasting sauce like this one, to have available for later use, & I certainly wasn't disappointed with this one, but then I'm a true garlic lover! We did try some over a simple green bean dish & loved it, but I am reserving a good portion of it to have over baked chicken breast tomorrow! Will be making this sauce again, I'm sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
