Just in case you didn't make it back to my blog, I saw you asked about mock Hollandaise sauce. I wasn't sure if you knew what Hollandaise sauce was, as I realized I am not certain if Eggs Benedict is just an American Dish? Anyway, Mock Hollandaise is actually more involved than regular hollandise. Mock, is a medium thickness white sauce to which you add while still hot and just before you serve, three egg yolks, 5 tbs butter (one tbs at a time whipping to melt) and one tbs fresh lemon juice. This is then served hot over poached eggs on canadian bacon (ham/gammon) or bacon or seafood (such as crab or lobster) on english muffins (not sure equivalent in Australia) or toast. Do you have such a dish? Also fresh parsly is usually chopped on top, but I prefer coriander (or cilantro as we sometimes call it in the states). I hope this makes sense.
