It's true: fast, easy, and yummy! You can make eggs Benedict, chicken or steak Neptune at home in no time. For a more savory dish, substitute red wine vinegar for the lemon juice and sprinkle in dried tarragon.

Excellent and easy. I did not use milk in the recipe. One tip if the eggs curdle use very hot water and add a little bit at time till the sauce smooths out. Perfect sauce very time!

I did not care for this recipe. The instructions are so vague it didn't turn out.

YUMMM! Will be my automatic go-to. I served atop Chicken Cordon Bleu and asparagus at a dinner party...we all loved it! I had chicken broth ready so when it needed some smoothing a few teaspoons did wonders.

I tried this and it was just ok. I went and looked at my standard recipe and tried again. I left out the milk and added 1tsp of dried mustard (i think colman's is the best) be sure to take it out ever 15 mins to stir i just a small wire whisk or use a fork be sure not to put metal utensil in microwave. Delicious!! especially on asparagus!!

So good! Needed a hollandaise that my 16 year old could make while I was poaching eggs for Eggs Benedict. She made this perfectly! Great consistency and taste! It was her first time having Eggs Benedict and she is in love!My only suggestion is to cut the lemon juice some. It was a little tangy.

Amazing! Absolutely perfect can be done every day or weekend. I m never paying for the eggs Benedict at a restaurant again! Followed the recipe exactly except i had to microwave butter for 1.5 minutes that s how long it took to melt.

Quick easy and delicious! But it does take more than 1minute to thicken. About a minute and a half. My new go-to hollandaise recipe.

Wow this was yummy! All of a sudden I started craving eggs Benedict but wasn't in the mood to fuss with the hollandaise sauce. This recipe looked super quick and easy so I tried it and I'm so glad I did! I used vanilla soy milk in replace of milk because I was out of regular milk. I also need to remember that with the last step 30 seconds on our low wattage microwave is perfect. 45 seconds was a little too long.
