Are you making this? 
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Heavy cream
1/2 cup imported parmesan cheese; grated
1/2 cup imported romano cheese; grated
6 egg yolks; from fresh jumbo eggs

Original recipe makes 4



HEAT milk and cream in a heavy bottom saucepan until it begins to simmer. Turn off heat. Slowly whip in cheese, then remove from heat.PLACE egg yolks in a separate bowl and slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture. Slowly add egg yolk mixture back into remaining cream mixture. Place back on very low heat and continually stir until simmering. Take sauce off heat so it thickens. (This will increase temperature of egg yolks, known as tempering).SEASON to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve over your favorite pasta.

This is not the way we make our Alfredo sauce. We don't use eggs on any of our sauces. It still a good kick to it though.
