Okay..I'm going to contradict myself.

I want to play with this and since I know that hubby reads this lil bloggy , I can get his opinion .

Hollandaise Sauce ( From Scratch )
4 Egg yolks
1/2 Cup heavy cream.
2 Tablespoons leemon juice
2 Teaspoons Dijon nustard

Sauce from scratch instructions:
In the top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over simmering water , whisk egg yolks, cream , lemon juice and mustard until blended. Cook until just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and the temperature is 160 degrees, whisking constantly. Reduce the heat to very low, drizzle in warm , melted butter and whisk constantly. Serve immediately with casserole.


For the casserole:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove casserole from refridgerator while oven heats. Bake covered 35 minutes then uncover and bake 10 - 15 minutes until a knife inserted near the conter comes out clean.

Notes:

I think for the first run I'd halve the recipe, seems like a  lot for just the two of us.This could work into a nice meal in the winter with a green salad..
