The first time I made this recipe, well it was a disaster. The double boiler method to make the sauce was a huge failure despite my best effort to follow the directions exactly. I ended up with a lumpy, very unappealing hollandaise sauce. The 2nd time I attempted this recipe; I used the suggestion of other "raters" and mixed the hollandaise sauce in my blender. Much, much easier and the results were perfect - a nicely incorporated sauce, not a clumpy mess. I still haven't determined however what our preference is regarding the lemon juice. 3 1/2 T. of lemon juice seemed like too much however during the 2nd try, we reduced the lemon juice to 2 T. and that actually didn't seem to be enough. I guess we'll just have to keep experimenting with the lemon juice. Over all however, a really easy recipe. The only down side is that this is a recipe that should be piping hot for the best results. A real challenge when you are preparing this for 4 or 5 people (the eggs will get ahead of you, the muffins will start to brown too quickly, or the bacon or sauce will start to get too cool). I'll definitely try this again.
