3 Minute Hollandaise

"When I was first married a neighbor gave me this recipe for my first dinner party. I was afraid to tackle a "real" hollandaise sauce and this was perfect. I still use it today."

  1. THANK you!!! I don't always want to do a full-on batch of Hollandaise. This gives me interesting options to work with. The tastes (and recipe) are very good to begin with -- and I'm enjoying dithering with the ingredients. I appreciate your post, greatly.
  2. The mayo kind of overpowered everything else. It really does not look or taste like hollandaise but it so much easier to make. Its kind of like comparing Jello Cheesecake to a baked from scratch one. Not as good as the real thing but it will do.
  3. I forgot to make the Hollandaise sauce for the asparagus that my son asked me to fix so I tired your quick recipe. I don't eat Hollandaise sauce so I asked him to rate it. Thanks Denise in da Kitchen. Bullwinkle
  4. This makes a very small amount of sauce and it really didn't taste or look much like real Hollandaise sauce does. The mayo really is the star ingredient here and I think it tasted good, just not like Hollandaise. I needed to add a lot more mustard and more lemon juice to balance the mayo.
  5. This did the trick. Great if you dont want to deal with the real thing. I will use this again, it was very good.


I LOVE to cook and eat and read cookbooks. My kitchen really does overfloweth with them and of course this has quickly become my favorite cooking site! I live with my husband in a small town in eastern Connecticut. We are both retired. My children are all grown and have families of their own now. Our 3 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter all live in Florida and it goes without saying that we miss them very much, so when my husband retired last year we celebrated by buying a small RV! We so enjoyed driving it to Florida to spend the holidays with the little ones. Although COVID has prevented us from repeating the trip this year, I am enjoying learning new recipes to make in our RV for next year. I think the Instant Pot and the Crock Pot will be my new best friends while traveling!
