The sauce in this dish is different from most cream sauces in that it is thickened with egg yolks rather than flour, and this gives it a unique taste and color all its own.
Whole eggs could be used instead of just yolks; while the taste doesn't really suffer much, the egg whites give it a somewhat grainy texture.
