How many times have you tried to make something in the kitchen, but it doesn’t go as expected and you have to trash it? Recently, I was quickly whipping up some Eggs Benedict to go with my homemade sourdough, and the Hollandaise sauce unfortunately split. Instead of tossing out the bad batch, I decided to use the split sauce creatively and recover it!

So here’s what I made... a gorgeous Almond, Orange, Cranberry and Pistachio Biscotti! I totally saved the day and you seriously wouldn’t be able to tell that this was made from a kitchen failure!

I used the split hollandaise and a few ingredients I had at home and it was so easy to make, which went so well with Blackcurrant tea.

How do you salvage your kitchen nightmares?
