I love this version of hollandaise sauce! It is quick, easy to make, and very tasty. The Dijon mustard gives it a nice kick. I have made this several times and it has become a family favourite over white asparagus and boiled potatoes (German family). I made this today and I cooked it a bit longer than I should have in the microwave, so the sauce curdled a bit. To save it, I pureed it with a hand mixer and then continued nuking it till it thickened up. I always use this method when I accidently curdle a sauce and so far it has worked like a charm. Hopefully this helps other cooks. One last note, I also added a bit of dill and seasoned with salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! This is going into my Keeper File.

Fast, easy & delicious! I used 1% milk (it's all I had) and it still turned out great! I will never buy a mix again :) Thanks for posting this.

I loved the ease of this recipe. I've definitely had a few mishaps with hollandaise in the past, and this was very simple and straightforward. I did feel it needed a bit more lemon juice and some seasoning, but enjoyed it on eggs benedict yesterday, and will be enjoying it again tonight on brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Thanks for a keeper!

Very Nice ... I love traditional Hollandaise, however, this was tasty, quick and easy and I completely enjoyed it. A great alternative. Definitely in my recipes. I made it with your casserole and thought it was excellent. I followed exact instructions, but next time, I may do 1/4 half and half and 1/4 heavy cream, just to thin it out a bit. But either way it was great. I think the consistency would vary depending on what I serve it with. Perfect!

Delicious, very rich. I made the Eggs Benedict Casserole, and we liked it as much as a classic eggs benedict without the hassle of making 12 individual ones for my holiday brunch. It is not for anyone on a diet, though. The butter in this sauce caused it to solidify when it cooled in my fridge...but it still tasted good the next day :)

This is great! The only thing I did different was not use the microwave and I put it all in the blender at the end. Came out great. My Wife said it is the best Hollandaise sauce she has ever had.

I was looking for an easy "mock hollandaise sauce" recipe and found this one. It was excellent. I even used light butter and 2% milk and it was quite tasty even if a little bit thin in texture. I also added a little salt, black pepper and cayenne. One bowl. Ten minutes max. I plan to put this one in my permanent file. Thanks for sharing.

Have used this a number of times now. My family likes less lemon, do I go with about 1/2 the amount -- 1 Tb in full recipe, 1 to 1-1/2 tsp in half recipe, which does 3 large eggs Benedicts for us. Watch the time -- sauce starts to break if over cooked. If you cook it until it looks done, it's too much. If not too far gone, can save it with more whisking when adding the mustard (which emulsifies it anyway and keeps it together).
