    I really liked this recipe. I could eat this mock Hollandaise sauce and not feel guilty about it, but it still tasted great. I am going to make it on Christmas morning with fresh crab meat.

    I used crab cakes instead of crab because it's what I had on hand. Lovely easy dinner.

    We recently had Crab Eggs Benedict in Napa and decided to try and duplicate the meal at home. SUCCESS! with the only "special" ingredient being a pkg of mock Crab Classic Chunk Style. No lemon.. no prob. Skip the zest and just use bottled lemon. Used real Mayo. Honey dijon mustard. Basics from your refrigerator! Toss the top 6 ingred + butter in a saucepan & stir. Add defrosted mock/real crab chunks and carefully heat while you TOAST 6 english muffin halves (they served 2 per person) and poach your eggs. Assembly: spread some sauce on each muffin half and divey up the crab.. saving a bit of sauce. Place poached egg on top and then use that last bit of sauce to top each egg. (a little goes a long way in taste) GARNISH with chopped green onion or whats handy... chives, parsley, etc. Side dish can be asparagus, etc.. but since it was Easter, we had a slice of Scandinavian almond cake topped with strawberries and banana. Cup of juice and coffee and... WOW!^) GREAT recipe/fewer calories!

    Very good substitute for traditional calorie-laden hollandaise, but the nutritional content listed here cannot be right. 503 cal per serving with four servings would mean this recipe is 2000 cal. Cant imagine that is right.
