    I melted butter. Put egg, lemon juice, & salt into sm. saucepan on low heat. Whisked while heating til sauce started to thicken. Added butter in stream and whisked more til thick. No need for dbl. boiler, blender, beater. Yummy. Makes enough for 3 or 2 sauce lovers. I'll be making this again and again.

    I have never had or made hollandaise sauce but we all enjoyed this! It was simple to make and my husband and toddler loved it! I added a couple dashes of Frank's Hot Sauce in there. It gave it a nice kick. Served on eggs benedict with fresh spinach.

    Everyone loved this and no one knew I cheated with this easy recipe. This is so easy and delicious. Based on the other review, I used 1 1/2 T lemon juice and I added a couple of dashes of hot sauce-mmm! Definitely a keeper.

    This sauce really is quite good and easy to make. I normally do the kind in a double boiler, but I didn't have access to one when I can across this recipe. I added a couple dashes of worchestershire sauce and next time I make this, I believe I will decrease the lemon juice by 1 T. I made a double recipe and it made a very generous amount.


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
