“This is absolutely, positively delicious poured over freshly cooked asparagus, broccoli, beans, fish and eggs!! It is best made as close to serving time as possible while it is still hot/very warm. It should always be possible to do this as it only takes about 5 minutes to make! I haven't included the cooking time here as the only 'cooking time' involved is to melt the butter. It really is so easy to make!”
2/3 cup of delicious Hollandaise Sauce
