Fabulous! I was nervous about the hollandaise because I'm a bit old-school about sauces. Hollandaise & bearnaise were one of the 1st things i learned to make when i was about 15. It was very good...we decided it was better than Knorr or similar but not quite as good as when cooked in the double boiler. I was excited when it started to thicken but after the next 20 seconds, it broke. A good whisking fixed that. I also added more lemon juice because it wasn't quite tart enough for us. The asparagus is spot on gorgeous. I did find white asparagus & it was a real treat! Thank you! Made for German Tag Contest 5/12,
Update - I have used this sauce weekly since finding this sauce recipe. I am rating the sauce only. I cut the recipe and half and loved it.
I was very sceptical to try the microwave hollandaise, I never cook in the microwave. Besides, I have never made white asparagus, we always use the green one which is available year round in Florida. But, I bravely pushed onward, following the recipe to a T and was richly rewarded! The asparagus was tender, I loved the lemon flavor, however, the big surprize was the hollandaise sauce! Silky and smooth and very tasty. With a glass of Riesling, this was a lovely lunch! Tagged, made and reviewed for the "More than Sauerkraut and Dumpling" event.
