Easy, Tangy Hollandaise Sauce

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars
2

"Great and easy hollandaise sauce. I like my hollandaise sauce tangy and with a kick so I add extra lemon juice and cayenne pepper to my liking. It serves 2 to 4 depending on what you put it on. I use it on eggs Benedict. It's the best I have had - not bland like some hollandaise sauces!"

This will be my always go to recipe . Easy to remember the ingredients. Served it at a dinner party over asparagus, everyone loved it.

Yum! I could’ve skipped dinner and pretended this was soup, and eaten it all by myself! Super easy too.

Good recipe! It tasted great with my breakfast poutine. I think with some recipes I may use less lemon juice.

Too runny. Use less water

Perfect every time! I use the recipe exactly as written.

Loved this simple recipe that brightened up my dish. I forgot to add water and it separated a little, but maybe because I stopped to reheat it a couple times. It was really smooth before I start...

Very easy but way too much lemon. Next time I'm going to use only 1/2 a tablespoon!

Super runny.

I would definitely recommend this recipe. I like the extra flavor of the lemon juice as well.
