I've been making real Hollandaise for years now and this comes very close to taste and consistency. A very fast way to make it!! I would alter this a bit with a dash of cayenne pepper and up the butter to 2 or 2 1/2 T butter (lower the milk to 1/3 cup). Very good!

Finally! A recipe for Hollandaise that recognizes the need for the ABSENSE of "burn-your-face-off" ingredients !!!!!!!!!!!!

This was okay. It tasted way too much like like a medium- to thick-roux to me. Not quite what I've been searching for, but thanks for posting it, anyway. It never hurts to try something new.
