Quick and Easy Hollandaise Sauce in the Microwave

scottki

"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...

Perfect just the way it is!!! Add on: This is still the only way we make it anymore! LOVE this recipe just the way it is!!! Note: for all the people adding mayo and changing the recipe wh...

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.

This is by far the easiest and surprisingly the best hollandaise I have ever made. I love the sour back-taste in hollandaise, so I added more lemon juice and more cayenne for more heat. By using...

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!
