From The Joy of Cooking. This is like a taste of heaven. Wonderful on fillet of beef, vegetables, eggs, or fish. I could just eat it with a spoon.

    Very easy to make and tastes wonderful! Won't ever go back to making Bernaise any other way. Thanks!

    I served this over filet mignon the night my hubby proposed to me, need I say more? We don't eat steak at our house anymore without this served with it!
