Gluten Free Hollandaise Sauce {Eggs Benedict}

Hollandaise Sauce, also known as Dutch Sauce, is commonly a key ingredient for Eggs Benedict, and is often also served on vegetables such as steamed asparagus. Being naturally gluten free, it was easy to continue enjoying a gluten free breakfast classic. It is an “emulsion” which means two or more ordinarily opposite ingredients are broken down and blended together. This unique combination of ingredients is a must have at breakfast and it is super easy to make too!

    Excellent recipe. I was checking everywhere for an easy hollandaise sauce that was GF and I’m impressed! Thank you and best of luck.

    Really forgiving hollandaise and delicious. I’ve made h-sauce before but it always separates on me. Maybe just lucky today but I’m keeping this recipe. BTW, served over roasted vegetables for dinner – crowd pleaser!

    Love this recipe…but if you want to experiment, try fresh lime. Makes it a bit sharper and tarter but still delicious!

    I was craving eggs benedict but was saddened when I realized I didn’t have any hollandaise! I’d never made my own sauce before so I was a little nervous but I did a quick google search and this was the first recipe to pop up. Well, let me just say it was perfect! Super easy as well! I adjusted the recipe for the sauce since I was only making it for myself. I used two egg yolks and honestly eyeballed the rest. I would say I did a tablespoon of both lemon juice and butter and a few dashes of salt and paprika instead of cayenne (I didn’t have any on hand). Used the same cooking instructions and turned out great!

    Used this for the sauce and poached eggs. We had 4 left over salmon cakes from the night before, so we used that in placed of the meat and english muffin and it came out delicious. Sauce was relatively easy to make came out smooth and creamy and just the right consistency, but did take A LOT of whisking. Will definitely make again.

    This was my first try making hollandaise sauce. I forgot to buy lemons but bottled juice worked out ok. It was much easier than I thought and turned out amazing. I’m still awful at poaching eggs as they aren’t pretty but they tasted good. Thanks Christine! Stay well!

    Second time I have made this recipe. It’s was a perfect Sunday morning football breakfast with Mimosas!
    It’s how we roll during #covid!

    1st time making this food at all and it turned out great! I used a pot atop of a boiling pot of water and it worked surprisingly well, just had to lift it off a couple of times to prevent egg scrambling.

    We made the whole eggs Benedict part of this recipe this morning and it was so good! It made it seem like we were having breakfast in a nice restaurant while we’re sheltering in place. We did add way more cayenne than the recipe recommends but that’s just a taste thing. Also be patient with the whisking. It takes a while and you have to whisk VIGOROUSLY

    I used this recipe in my second attempt to make Hollandaise sauce from scratch. It was ai good and so easy to make. I used a glass bowl(a Pampered Chef one), instead of a stainless steel one. It still came out amazing. Will definitely be using this one again.

    Amazing… Not sure why it took me so long to make eggs benedict at home. Hollandaise sauce required a little thinning… but used the water and it was near perfect. Maybe.. perfect. Restaurant quality meal all around.

    Something so simple, yet so easy to screw up! It took quite a few tries before I finally got the perfect consistency for our hollandaise sauce, but it worked.

    Gave this recipe a try for Christmas, my daughter has celiac disease. It worked perfect for eggs benedict!! Smooth, creamy, yum. I know, naturally gluten free, but when you’ve only made from packets, it was a surprise!

    Thank you, printing for future use 🙂

    I have lost count the number of times I’ve made this recipe now. It’s delicious! Of course it is easy to make gluten free when you stick to easy ingredients. Why didn’t I think of this sooner. Thank you!

    Excellent and relatively easy recipe. The hardest part for me was not having a double boiler, but I used a stainless steel bowl on top of a saucepan with water in it and it worked well. I added bacon bits on the English muffins, under the eggs and it was delicious. My family loved it.

    Thank you so much for this! Had a hankerin for a GF eggs benedict this morning and you made it possible for me!

    My secret is that I use a hand mixer rather than whisking it by hand! It works wonders and saves a whole lot of energy! I’ve always wondered why its not recommended to begin with – but this recipe is definitely the way to go!
