Mock Hollandaise Sauce Is Amazing!
This mock hollandaise recipe requires no cooking or separating eggs. Hollandaise sauce can be fussy to make it a little too time-consuming for normal breakfasts. This mock hollandaise is made of mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice, and paprika.
Mixed then heated in the microwave, you are good to go in a couple of minutes. You can easily make this sauce ahead of time. It keeps for leftovers and is a great sauce for fish or vegetables. Yum!
The original recipe came from Better Homes and Garden Cookbook years ago. I adapted it by changing up the herbs and spices. Sometimes I use dijon mustard and smoked paprika. Other times, I stick with the recipe. Either way, it's a hit!
