Ersatz Hollandaise

OK, it ain't Hollandaise, but it's pretty good on asparagus and salmon.

No proportions, but mix some mayo with lemon juice and a pinch or so of cayenne until you get a taste and consistency that you like.

Works for me.

2. Great Idea!

I have screwed up enough Hollandaise in my lifetime to have given up trying! It's either watery or curdled.

I like your aioli sauce instead.

5. It will be slightly less rich because mayo is made with oil

instead of butter, but it's basically the same thing.

I like the cayenne instead of dijon.

6. That's how Mom made it but with seasoned salt rather than cayenne

She'd make it to go on broccoli. I only had real Hollandaise sauce last fall - one morning I splurged on eggs Benedict for breakfast. It tasted weird since I was used to the ersatz version.

7. Using the blender method real hollandaise takes not much more time

But hollandaise and mayonnaise are very similar as far as the ingredients go. The biggest difference is oil instead of butter.
