    Sunkist Growers, Inc's Note:

    The secret to this easy Hollandaise Sauce is in separating the egg yolks. Remove all the egg whites, as they can thin the sauce. Also, it is best prepared in a double boiler to prevent overheating. Serve over cooked asparagus, broccoli, or broiled tomatoes.

      Forget it. Go with the recipe in Joy of Cooking. Same ingredients, a bit more work but well worth it. I found this recipe very disappointing.

      I used this recipe in a pinch when I realized I didn't have enough hollandaise. It was good, but I thought it fell short of the real deal. I mixed it with the other hollaindaise I had and it worked out well. Thank you for helping save dinner!LOL
