Hollandaise Sauce - July 2008

Hollandaise sauce is the perfect finishing touch for bacon, eggs, radish greens and toasted multigrain bread. Don't forget to garnish with chives and radish sprouts! Radishes and radish greens are also fabulous stir-fried.

Poached Eggs, Asparagus, Ham and Hollandaise Sauce on Toast. Our chives were flourishing but have not flowered so we garnished with violas to add a festive spring note.

See the amazing contrast of colours between the yolk and the Hollandaise sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce - May 2009

I'm not a fan of runny yolks OR mushy toast, so chose to have hard boiled eggs and Multigrain Toast.

Hollandaise Sauce - May 2009

The contrast in colour between the yolk and the Hollandaise sauce is not so marked but the flavours still marry beautifully. I like the differing textures too. A little freshly ground pepper is a nice touch as well.

Whenever asparagus season arrives, I suddenly neeeeeeed to have Eggs Fauxrentine. I should have cut a few violas when I went into the garden to get the chives but I was so excited about Hollandaise sauce and asparagus that I forgot.

Hollandaise Sauce - June 2011

Instead of multigrain toast, this time the eggs rested on a storebought (eeeek!!) sesame bagel.

We use this wonderful round pot for a double boiler to make Hollandaise. (We have a beautiful copper bowl for whipping egg whites in another part of the kitchen.)
