Sunday Brunch – What’s New This Week?

June 1

Mostly everything was the same, but this week I made a mock Hollandaise Dill sauce – very mock. ;->

No butter, no eggs – just milk, flour and Havarti cheese, sprinkled with dill weed. If I had thought of it in time, I would have incorporated the fond from the pan where I cooked the ham and pineapple. That would have made it more robust, and would have given it a deeper color. But just the slight flavor of the Havarti and dill was good, too.

There was a fair amount of the “Hollandaise” leftover, so I will likely add some cooked potatoes, onions, and some homemade bone broth to make a nice soup for a lunch of “Soup and Sandwich” today or tomorrow.

    That pineapple caught my eye. I bought a pineapple over the weekend and it is sitting out on the counter ripening – smelling more sweet every day. I think I’ll buy a slice of Canadian bacon today and have bacon & pineapple soon. I’ve always wanted to try to make Hollandaise, but I think I’d go for broke and make the kind with a zillion calories! Haven’t had that for years.

      Oh, I love Hollandaise sauce, too, especially with tarragon . . . but much too lazy to go to all that trouble these days. It’s all I can do to get the items you see here to all be edible at the same time! I wasn’t worried about the calories.

        I often wonder how you manage to get everything together so that it’s ready at the same time. That’s always been a problem for me because I like hot foods to be hot, or at least pretty warm.


        • judilyn says:

          I like HOT foods, too, so it is a chore, but there are ways to keep things warm with pan lids, etc. just put down over the top of the food on a plate.

    Okay, you’re going to HATE this: my Fake Hollandaise is from the “I Hate to Cook Book” that I received as an engagement gift from my sister-in-law in November 1965. I love that book and brought it with me on the road. Mayonnaise, milk, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cooked, stirred and poured on Eggs Benedict – one of my favorites. Best Foods Mayo only, though. Geez, I love that stuff! 🙂

    . . .table for two, please. . .


  4. Sherry says:

    Make that a table for 3 well probably 4 actually. Your food always makes me so hungry. I need to hire you as our chef. Or start eating all my meals at your house.

    That dill sauce sounds pretty good!


    • judilyn says:

      It was! And, since there was so much of it leftover, I made soup out of it – adding mushrooms, onions, and potatoes. I was just using a picture of the soup to play with a new software app. It looked so good all over again! ;->

    There are those moments when I just want to eat food with subtle flavour so the slight flavor of the Havarti and dill would have been mighty okay for me. Please mail me that fair amount of the “Hollandaise” , I wouldn’t mind using it all up. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Whoa. That’s a whole inspiring lot of deliciousness right there!
