What's that? Oh, of course, Hollandaise Sauce. How silly of us. (Yes, we've been known to be silly.) But there's nothing silly about Trader Joe's Hollandaise Sauce. In fact, this is quite a serious sauce. It's made with traditional Hollandaise ingredients like butter, eggs, lemon juice & Dijon mustard. Unlike the traditional version you'd make from scratch, though, ours is stable enough to microwave or even freeze/thaw - a quick stir and it's back to its original texture, integrity intact.
Hollandaise Sauce is traditionally associated with French cuisine - it's one of the five Mother Sauces in the French culinary tradition. (The other four? Béchamel, Tomate, Velouté, and Espagnole) But there's no need to pull out a cookbook of haute cuisine to figure out what to do with Trader Joe's Hollandaise. It's really quite simple. And simply delicious.
Does your family do eggs Benedict for holiday brunch? Do you serve asparagus with Hollandaise for family dinners of the season? Have you ever dipped an artichoke in Hollandaise instead of plain old butter? Trader Joe's Hollandaise Sauce makes all these things possible, in minutes, with nary a bit of work on your part. Heat, stir, serve. And we're selling eight ounce tubs for a mere $2.99, making this not just a culinary timesaver, but a money saver, too. You'll find it in our refrigerated case.
