Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. If using mushrooms, saute, stirring, until golden.
  2. Blend the flour and seasonings into the butter. Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes.
  3. Gradually add half-and-half and sherry to the roux; cook until the sauce is smooth and has thickened, stirring constantly.
  4. Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl.
  5. Whisk about one-third of the hot cream sauce mixture into the egg yolks. Add the egg yolk and sauce mixture back to the saucepan and whisk to blend.
  6. Heat to 175 F or until the cream sauce coats the back of a spoon.
  7. Add shrimp and heat through, stirring constantly. Serve the shrimp and sauce over puff pastry shells, rice, angel hair pasta, or toast points.
Recipe Notes

Tips and Variations

  • Sprinkle servings with fresh chopped parsley or chives.
  • Omit the mushrooms or replace them with steamed peas or a combination of peas and carrots.
  • Seafood Newburg: Make the dish with half shrimp and half seared scallops or a combination of shrimp with chunks of mild white fish, lobster, scallops, or crab.
  • Replace the sherry with dry white wine.
  • If you don't have half-and-half, use 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of whipping cream.
  • Spoon some of the shrimp Newburg over eggs Benedict for an elegant brunch dish.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1/2 cup sugar, butter, milk, egg yolks, salt, lemon peel, nutmeg and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 16-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together to form a ring. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Brush with egg.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack. For glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and enough water to achieve desired consistency. Spread over cake. Sprinkle with colored sugars.
