Hollandaise sauce is a delicious buttery sauce that originated in Holland. The sauce is typically served over eggs Benedict or eggs Royale. For lunch, my favourite thing to eat is sourdough toast, topped with smoked ham, poached eggs and this wonderful hollandaise sauce. Sadie and I used to go out for lunch a lot, and this is what I would order, but now that Sadie makes the sauce herself, we eat it at home for a special treat.
The thing with hollandaise sauce is that it can be quite easy to do it wrong resulting in a waste of ingredients however with our simple easy recipe, it is 100% foolproof.
