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 Point per serving, you can treat yourself to a gourmet and decadent dressing that the whole family will enjoy.
