This sauce is great on poultry, fish, rare beef, steamed veggies (especially asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower), whole grains, and wild rice.

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

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
