I hurried to make this dish for a potluck, but I made it exactly as written. It was only 10 minutes out of the oven before people were trying it, and I got great compliments. The hollandaise I used was not from a package, but from a 4-star recipe on this site, so this was two recipes in one. A couple of notes, though: the cooked vegetable mixture, before adding the hollandaise, had quite a bit of liquid at the bottom. The recipe didn't say to do so, but I tried to drain it all. Even after mixing in the hollandaise and putting it between the pastry crusts, liquid seeped out. So my results were not picture-perfect, since I was hurrying and didn't pinch-seal the edges well enough. The other thing I should mention is that I had a lot more filling than I thought could fit inside the crust. Unless I was being too conservative, I only managed to put maybe 2/3rds of the filling inside until I thought it was maxed-out. I rarely buy asparagus, but maybe my "2 bunches" of asparagus, even after trimming, were a lot larger than average? Still, the leftover veggies in hollandaise should be really tasty when reheated tomorrow. Overall, despite my results being a bit of a structural mess, they looked nice and better yet tasted wonderful, and earned me praise.
