Simple Cream Sauce (without the cream!!)

I've been eating some quick recipes out of my repertoire these days or out of my freeze with my homemade leftovers as we work our way through Emily's chemo (see her blog, Her Lovely Lady Lumps )  At the moment she's doing great so I shook my pots and pans and made a little brunch. 

This is a simplified version of sauce I've made before.  It goes best on poached eggs, veggies or chicken.

Cream Sauce without the Cream. 
Serves 2

  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped chives

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl
  2. Microwave for 30 minutes, whisk, repeat until the butter is melted and the sauce is warm

That's it.  I use the chive butter that I have in my freezer.  I have large patches of chives in my garden so I make lots of chive butter to have during the winter months.  It's also way easier to grab as I'm cooking then to run out to the yard in the middle of food prep!
