Wow, these turned out great. We had anticipated issues with the poaching of the eggs – arguably the most difficult aspect of this recipe – but had success with all four of the eggs. The most surprising part of this recipe was learning that hollandaise sauce is actually just raw egg yolk with some other ingredients. I wouldn’t have imagined that.
