I've made this recipe several times, and I've always had good results. This morning, however, I discovered--too late!--that we were out of lemon juice; on a whim, I used lime juice instead. Voila! The sweetness of the lime really brings out the richness of the hollandaise. If you feel slightly adventurous, try this variation.

Buttery mess and difficult to combine. Really just tasted and looked like butter. The egg did not combine well at all.

Really enjoyed the flavor of this hollandaise. I only used about 2 tbls. of butter but the flavor was still spot on.

I agree with pamofpenna. While this recipe consists of the ingrediants found in most Hollandaise Sauces, the recipe was fairly vague in cooking techniques. It turned into a buttery mess that went down the garbage disposal. I think enhancement on the cooking techniques of this recipe would benefit anyone who has never made Hollandaise Sauce before. YouTube has a great video by Alton Brown that is eggselent in assisting anyone who wants to venture off into this sauce.
