Easy microwave hollandaise sauce (lighter)

Submitted by: NOMEDEPLUME

Introduction

This is my first remake of our traditional Sunday night dinner - Eggs Benedict. I've started here by substituting extra light cream cheese for the cream. It worked great and tasted even better than with cream. Next week I'll try replacing the butter with a lighter spread to bring down the calorie count even more!

  • I was looking for a hollandaise that was traditional but less fat. This looked the most similar while cutting out about half the butter. And it turned out great! It had a strong cream cheese flavour at first but I added more lemon, some cayenne and salt/pepper. Once on the eggs and ham, perfect! - 6/24/11
