This was easy to make and tasted good on my boiled eggs but it does have the cream cheese flavor (which isn't common for hollandaise). The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I like One-Minute Hollandaise Sauce better. Read More

I did make this but had 4 Oz of cream cheese to get rid of quickly so I added an extra yolk a pat of unsalted butter and a bit more milk (2%) I like it thick you can add however much for consistency. You can taste the cream cheese but not intensely. It is very yummy. I got a double thumbs up from The Hubs whose mother has been making hollandaise for decades. Read More

I LLOOVVEE this sauce! Hence why I posted the recipe. My husband likes less lemony flavor than I, and I find using cream instead of milk tempers the tartness of the lemon juice. Read More

Great recipe! This was so simple and tasty. I love hollandaise but don't need the fat and calories from all the butter in a traditional recipe. I made this for eggs benedict using reduced fat cream cheese--YUM! I think it would also be delicious over asparagus chicken and a myriad of other foods. Thanks Andie! Read More
