"Not So Stuffy" Hollandaise Sauce...In a Blender

October 2011

Whenever I think of Hollandaise sauce I immediately think it's way too "rich" (in more ways than one) for me. Mind you, I love it. It's the perfect breakfast - think McMuffin...only fancy.

So tonight I was scrambling (pardon the pun) to make dinner and thought it would be fun to try a "brinner." A term used by one of our Facebook fans to describe breakfast for dinner.

Tonight's dish - Eggs Benedict, only I didn't have a "packet" for that...and I have "packet" for everything (chili, tacos, fajitas, shake and bake...).

...and then I found this recipe for hollandaise sauce...in a blender

And this is what I created with it...Eggs Benedict - Bagel Style.

A bagel, topped with a fried egg and two strips of Canadian bacon & homemade hollandaise. You can also use the traditional English Muffin.

I used Smart Balance for the butter (in the sauce recipe). Thus, my version isn't quite as *thick* (aka-fattening) as the original.

The kids loved it....my husband loved it. It was drive-through quick and fine-dining...fancy.
