Bring back eggs Benedict with our lightened-up Hollandaise sauce. Here we thicken buttermilk with cornstarch; a touch of butter and fresh lemon creates a pleasant, tangy sauce that has only 1 gram of fat per tablespoon. It's great drizzled over steamed vegetables.

as good as the real thing, but without the guilt

My husband is obsessed with eggs benedict. I love poached eggs, but the hollandaise sauce always upset my health-conscious stomach. This is a fabulous solution for us. We both love this sauce, and will never go back to the regular kind. It also has way less tendency to curdle like regular hollandaise. Thank you!

low fat, fast, doesn't curdle
Excellent Alternative

This was a really great addition to eggs benedict. My husband and I both loved it. I didn't have buttermilk so I used skim milk and it still turned out great. The recipe made almost exactly 2 servings. I calculated the nutritional value with skim milk and it is about 100 calories total per person! Much better than the alternative.

Much healthier than the original version with great taste
Our go-to Hollandaise recipe

I'll never use the "real thing" again. We follow the recipe exactly, and are happy (and healthy) every time. It is much brighter than the "real thing," as has been mentioned, but I think that makes for an even better Benedict.

Very good & Happy with the results!

My husband and I wanted eggs Benny and looking at the recipe that I had on hand asking for 3\4 of butter. I shuttered at the thought well there goes all my hard work at the gym today! So we looked for an alternative and found this one! Great recipe & muchly enjoyed on our salmon egg benny! :)
