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

Recipe: Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

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 Point for 1/4 cup.

  2. In a medium sized saucepan, whisk together ¼ cup of the non-fat buttermilk, cornstarch, salt, and cayenne pepper until smooth and well combined.
  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?

      You can use egg, but it will raise the Points Plus value a bit.

      • Two egg whites is about a quarter cup and 30 calories. I never buy egg substitute. I always use egg whites. That’s what egg substitute is.

  2. WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW!! I just put this on baked cod. Definitely 2 thumbs up! I did use lemon pepper instead of salt. You are my favorite lo-cal website!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

    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).
