How do you freeze liquid portions? Do you use themethod with putting a baggie in a cup, measure the sauce, then close the bag? Does the hollandaise sauce not break after microwaving. Breaking or curdling is a major problem with "real" hollandaise sauce. If this is avoided, then I will certainly prefer the package over the real. DH fixes me 2 poached eggs over spinach every Thursday morning. What a treat it would be to pull out a premeasured baggie of hollandaise sauce to drizzle over the eggs. This particular breakfast is one of my favorites and sustains me all morning. I usually have an accompaniment of blackberries & strawberries (70 gm total weight). Nothing slight or diety about this meal.

             Hi Karen. You can use the baggie in a cup method, however, the sauce is quite thick when cooled. I simply measured out two tablespoons and put it directly into a snack size zip-lock bag, then put those baggies into a freezer bag. This recipe with this packaged mix has never broken up or curdled for me either when fresh or when microwaved after frozen. I have already made a video which will be posted sometime next week called "Eggs Benedict for One" using one stored portion of that frozen Hollandaise sauce.

             I'll make sure that I post that Eggs Benedict for One recipe before Thursday. Hope those mentions are positive--My storage solutions allow my family to get the foods they like, even when those foods aren't what I choose to eat myself.

I tried the Knorr's with water. The consistency and creaminess was fine. It was not as tart as I am used to when DH makes it from scratch. I added a bit of bottled lemon juice and it was to my tasting. I liked storing the remainder in a baggie and freezing in a labeled qt bag. What a better way to store food- cheaper, less space, more convenient than plastic tubs.

             Karen, I'm glad it worked out for you. A simple as these storage methods are, my practice of immediately storing away food individually is really one of my most important weight-loss tips.
