This Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor heartily approves of this recipe because it's not only easy but tastes wonderful! I left a little of the lemon juice out and I am using it as a base for my homemade turkey pot pie. Good stuff!

This was delicious! However, it was a bit too lemony...next time I will make it with only 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

This was a very good recipe, which I used for my version of eggs benedict. The sauce was creamy and full of flavor. It was fairly lemony, but that may have been because I used organic, real lemon juice, which I think is highly concentrated. Overall, it was fabulous - as good as any other eggs benedict I've ever had. I used polenta rounds browned in oil in place of english muffins - wonderful!
