Foodie Friday First: Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise: a rich, lemony sauce


There’s a scene in Runaway Bride where Julia Roberts’ character tries all these different types of eggs because she doesn’t know what she prefers. (She’s always gone with whatever her current boyfriend’s tastes are.)

When she eats Eggs Benedict in the movie, I remember thinking, I’ve never had Hollandaise before. Well, folks, now I have.

The creamy sauce wasn’t from an eggs dish but coated some tasty crab cakes. I think Hollandaise definitely has a nice rich and creamy texture, but I was disappointed that it didn’t have much flavor. I think I expected more oomph from such an elegant name.

So I guess I’ll be sticking to my tried-n-true breakfast of scrambled or over-medium eggs.

How do you like your eggs cooked?

Foodie Friday: Blood Rice Cake


  1. I tried Eggs Benedict once and didn’t really care for it. The Hollandaise sauce wasn’t for me. I’m a scrambled egg kind of gal. And if they throw in a little cheddar, even better. ;)

  2. Still looks pretty nice, though. Certainly better than the butter toast I’m munching on as I type this.
