This was great stuff. I don't think I've ever made a hollandaise from scratch before. I gather it's supposed to be a little tricky sometimes. I was in a bit of a hurry since I was incorporating this into another recipe on this site ("Asparagus and Mushroom Puff Pastry Pie"), and I might have rushed things a little, but I guess the recipe is forgiving anyway. I made the recipe exactly as written, except I hurried a bit on the whisking. Therefore, my results might have been a little runnier than they're supposed to be (I think hollandaise is supposed to be somewhat thick), but the taste was great, and when I shared the dish at a potluck, I got great compliments. This is worth making again, since I love the sauce and had never bothered making it until now.
