"Quick and easy hollandaise sauce. Makes enough for 2 servings of eggs benedict or asparagus. I've tried several ways to make hollandaise sauce; this method works every time and is very quick. My kids love it. I put poached egg on toast or biscuit and top with sauce. I also add crumbled sausage with jalapeno and garlic."

Should have read all of the reviews to make a thicker tastier sauce for Eggs Benedict. Hubby was happy. Me, not so much.

Honestly, this may not be quite as rich or smooth as the somewhat labor-intensive hollandaise sauce that I make, but it was pretty darn good. I did end up adding a little more lemon juice and c...

I would say it needs a little longer in the microwave too depending on how hot the butter is being drizzled in. I like the 10 sec increments.

Simple and easy way to make Hollandaise - Makes enough for about 3-4 eggs benedicts. I used 1 tsp of lemon juice & added 1 tablespoon of mayo to the mix right before drizzling in the melted but...

This was quick, easy, and delicious! I also added 1Tbsp of mayo, and it turned out great! After reading other reviews, I cooked mine in 10 second increments, whisking in between. Great recipe,

So tasty and easy! I had to microwave it longer, maybe 40 seconds. I just did it in 10 second increments until it thickened up. Will be making this again. Thank you!

This was easy and delicious. After the first microwave and whisk, I repeated the process for a thicker sauce. I found this to be more than two servings. I substituted a slash of Worcestershir...

My first attempt, & I was stoked. Eggs benedict is my fave. I added chives also to my sauce
