1/1 Photo of Healthier Hollandaise Sauce With Variations
Tee Lee's Note:
This still has egg and butter, but buttermilk helps lighten it up. Is low-carb, low saturated fat, low cholesterol, low sodium and even heart healthy according to realage.com . Great for healthier Eggs Benedict or served over steamed asparagus, green beans or even Brussels sprouts. Includes variations for Sauce Moutarde (with mustard) and Sauce Maltaise (with orange juice) as well as microwave reheating directions. From Eating Well.
