I thought this was tasty & easy & will definitely make again but...I would put in just half of the juice from one lemon. I thought it was much too lemony for a traditional hollandaise!

Very nice hollandaise and so easy to make! I didn't have cream so I used 'half & half' one time and evaporated milk the last time. Both worked very well. Thanks for posting! Hubby says 'thanks', too! :)

just beautiful, we served it over lightly oiled fettucine with grilled salmon steaks and a generous dill garnish for a main course. Couldnt be simpler ;)
