Low Fat Microwave Hollandaise Sauce

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Papagayita

From a magazine, here for safe keeping. Makes a very good, thick and mild hollandaise. I eat it over poached eggs and toast in the mornings or use as a dipping sauce for steamed veggies. Amazingly easy. Stores well in fridge. I play around with the amount of mustard and cayenne as I like a spicier taste. Servings calculated on 1 T serving.

This was pretty good. Much better than the dry mix packet I got at Wal-Mart. SF and I are diabetics and watch fat along with calories and we both love Eggs Benedict. Did not have butter on hand so used a low fat vegetable oil spread. Will definitely use butter next time. SF suggested using Butter Buds pr butter flavoring.
