Meat free keto breakfast with the Easiest and Simplest hollandaise Ever

Meat free Breakfast? Yes, for the ones that do not eat meat. It is keto, delicious, and with paired with the easiest Hollandaise ever. I love hollandaise sauce, its richness, color, tangy taste, makes it one of my favorite items for a Sunday brunch. BUT (there is always a but right) many people complain how time-consuming it is and how easy it is to fail the recipe and end up with a miserable looking hollandaise, curdled and not appetizing at all. Yes, I share the pain. I am usually quite successful in making hollandaise but a couple of times I failed miserably and ended up with a messy mix. This recipe is totally fool-proof, takes minutes to make and no one will be able to distinguish between this Hollandaise and the standard one. Give it a try.

This recipe is all about the hollandaise. It is the easiest and fool proof hollandaise I have ever made. It is ready in literally 2 minutes, without the pain of having to whisk endlessly it over a water bath and failing to get the desired consistency. And even better, it is for ONE person. Can it get better than this? Hardly!
