A rich, creamy hollandaise sauce makes the perfect accompaniment to so many dishes from a classic eggs benedict, an upscaled salmon eggs benedict to fish or roasted asparagus. It’s such a simple sauce to make as well and one that every home cook can easily master. Managing the temperature while making the hollandaise sauce is really the key.

Here’s how I make mine.

    Yours looks lovely. πŸ™‚

  2. I have not had hollandaise in ages! This looks like the perfect recipe to change all that! Beautiful!
