Editor's Note: If you've ever thought that it would be difficult to whip up hollandaise sauce, then this recipe is for you! Only five ingredients are needed for this Hurry-Up Hollandaise recipe, and there's a good chance you likely already have everything you need and on hand in your pantry. You'll love dressing up steamed vegetables in almost no time when you include this easy-to-make sauce drizzled on top. The next time you feel a side dish at brunch or dinner needs a bit of a finishing touch, consider whipping up this sauce recipe.

Serve this with Perfectly Steamed Asparagus for a perfectly easy dish. It can also be covered and held if necessary, without separating as classic hollandaise can do; add the paprika at serving time.
