Hollandaise Sauce Recipe – 1 Points +

Hollandaise Sauce

Ever since the first time I tried Eggs Benedict, I have been in LOVE with Hollandaise Sauce. Something about that ooey gooey, creamy, buttery goodness that I just can’t get enough. But since the two main ingredients in traditional hollandaise sauce recipes are eggs and butter, it can end up being a pretty fattening sauce, loaded with Weight Watchers Points. But by making a few small changes, I slimmed it down, and made it a much more weight watchers friendly recipe. This delicious and easy hollandaise sauce recipe works well over eggs, salmon, toast, or roasted veggies (like asparagus). With just a 1 Points + per serving, you can treat yourself to a gourmet and decadent dressing that the whole family will enjoy.

Summary: A lighter and healthier hollandaise sauce, this creamy concoction will blow your mind. Delicious and buttery, it’s hard to believe that this low calorie hollandase is just 1 Points + for 1/4 cup.

  3. Add in the rest of the buttermilk and liquid egg substitute.
  4. Set the pan on medium-low heat, and whisk continuously until it begins to simmer and thicken.

    any thoughts on what to do if you don’t have egg substitute? 1 egg?

    Thank you for this recipe! Hollandaise sauce was killing my points and it is one of my favorite things. This is easier to make and tastes great (though I did add a lot more Lemon Juice than you called for).
