I'll admit I had all of the ingredients to do a traditional Hollandaise but this recipe caught my curiosity. I loved the addition of hot sauce and paprika but this was a little heavy on the mayo for me. I ended up adding a little more mustard when it was all said and done to suit my taste. You could definitely tell the difference between this and real Hollandaise but it IS a mock version and a pretty darn good one at that. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This is a similar mock hollandaise sauce I have made for over two decades that my husband is mad about on salmon and asparagus. The only difference is the addition of hot sauce. For my baked salmon,I chose to include as the hot sauce a well made sriracha sauce and OHMGosh!! What a difference then to my oldie mock hollandaise sauce! I prefer this hollandaise sauce as standard then the classic made with egg yolk and lemon. Try it and see what you,and your family's preference is as a topping for any fish,or vegetable. Read More

A healthier substitution to the traditional hollandaise. I added 1/8c of salted butter to the mixture which made it extra velvety and rich. The butter was added to the mixture in a warm bowl over a pot of simmering water. Read More

I have made this a few times now and a couple times without the hot sauce every time it came out great I have tried it with miracle whip a couple times as well or substituted grey coupon for yellow mustard that to me is the best version the grey coupon really makes it Read More

Prefer this to the egg version. Substituted hot spicy Kuhne mustard. I have as well done with tablespoon of yellow prepared and tablespoon of Kuhne mustard. There are probably many variations that could be done but found can not change the sour cream and mayo. Thanks Read More

I wasn t looking for a fake hollandaise sauce but rather a sauce I could use instead of hollandaise. My SO doesn t care for real hollandaise. This worked great for our crab cake Benedicts. I added some Old Bay and lemon to compliment the seafood. Read More

I’ve made regular hollandaise sauce—it’s not that difficult, it’s just a process that you need to see to the end and serve immediately. I thought I’d try this sauce on my hollandaise-loving hubby without telling him. He complimented me on the sauce! It comes together easily and holds nicely Read More
