Oh, there’s no place like home for the hollandaise…

Happy Sunday, friends! Sundays are a day to give thanks for everything you have: family, friends, good health, a roof over your head, love and…food. This week I have uncovered the true meaning behind being thankful for food, and since this is a food blog, I will spare you the details. But, if the word gastroenteritis doesn’t speak for itself then might I add in the fact that I am currently eating the millionth bowl of rice chex that I have had for breakfast since last Sunday due to the fact that my current BRAT diet consists of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. Can you say YUM?!?!? Mmm, my tastebuds are just salivating with never ending love for these four foods of which I can 100% guarantee I will never touch ever again once this sickness is over.

Anyways, there truly is no place like home for the hollandaise considering this dish was one that I made during my last couple of weeks home before moving to DC. If you love hollandaise sauce, but tend to find it too rich and heavy for your liking, then try this healthier alternative: a Greek yogurt-based hollandaise with a hint of dill, black pepper, and dijon mustard. It adds just the perfect amount of flavor and kick to your Sunday brunch. Enjoy every bit of this yummy dish for all those breakfast lovers like me out there who are currently suffering from breakfast withdrawal syndrome…
