“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.”

This is a great recipe which is very good the way they suggest you use it. This time however, I added a tablespoon of mayo before melting the butter and whisked it together before the heating step. It added some great creaminess that was lacking from the initial version and held it together more when spooning it over my eggs. WIN!

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.

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 cayenne to suit our tastes. I took the photo right when it came out of the microwave, and the butter had separated a bit. But all it really needed was a good whisk, and then the texture was spot on, and stayed that way. Served this on Ham Cups and Eggs, a recipe on this site. Thanks, scottki, we enjoyed your quick recipe.
