It's Recipe Swap time again! Breakfast was the theme of this Taste of Home Cooking recipe swap. I submitted my Banana Stuffed French Toast recipe, and was given a recipe for Greek Scramble with Lemony Hollandaise Sauce from the Ashley, the author of the blog Cheese Curd in Paradise.
I was intrigued by the hollandaise sauce because I have had it - love it with steak or asparagus - but I have never made it. Ashley made a quick hollandaise sauce when she made this recipe since she didn't have time to make it the traditional way. Since I have never made this sauce before, I did some reading on how to make it the traditional way and added a few steps to Ashley's quick recipe (this still isn't the completely traditional method of using a double boiler and clarified butter, but it was good for my first time). My friend Jenny was here and she actually did the stirring for me since I was taking care of the eggs, bacon, and potato pancakes all at the same time! But it did look very easy - you just need to stay on top of it so your eggs don't start to scramble!
I love spinach and tomatoes in an omelet - that's what I always order when we go out for breakfast - so I loved the scrambled part of this recipe. The hollandaise sauce was good, and I'd make it again to serve with steak or veggies, but not with eggs. Just a personal preference, that's all! Thanks for a great recipe, Ashley!
