Mornay Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by TishT

Use Mornay sauce on poached eggs, souffles, or on omelets, fish (when poached or steamed) or vegie dishes. If you have a double boiler, use it to prepare the sauce (not a requirement)

The onion is not authentic. (Neither is the yolk and cream, but I could make allowance for that.) The onion changes the character of the sauce and it should not be called mornay in this form, imo.
