    Jostlori's Note:

    I'm Hispanic, my husband is a first generation Greek-American. Suffice to say that he's a Greek Food Purist...!!! He never thought I'd be able to produce anything that would be considered authentic. This easy version of Avgolemono Sauce, I'm happy to say, passes muster. This can be served on so many things, but our favorite is over Dolmades and over stuffed peppers. Nothing scary here, it's easy so long as you temper the eggs carefully and never let the sauce come to a boil.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, then add the lemon juice and whisk until frothy.
    3. 3
      While continuing to whisk, pour half the boiling broth into the eggs in a small stream, whisking vigorously and continually so that the eggs don't cook.
    4. 4
      Return the broth to the flame and pour the tempered eggs into the remaining broth, whisking the whole time. Cook until the sauce thickens slightly, but NEVER LET THE SAUCE BOIL. This will take about five minutes.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately. This sauce doesn't reheat well.
