Easy Hollandaise Sauce Recipe
I was suprised. It really was delicious, easy and quick. It sure beats my other way of constant whisking and temperature taking. It tastes the same! Maybe better! It might be a bad thing though. I will be making Hollandaise more often. That means I am going to have to do more boarding, walking, zumba. Oh well.... you play you pay!
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
a dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
a dash of hot sauce, or a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Separate the eggs and add to blender. Heat the butter in the microwave or on the stove, until steaming, but not boiling.
With the blender turned on high, very slowly stream in the hot butter. Make sure the stream of butter is very small.
Add lemon juice, salt, and optional hot sauce. Continue to blend until thick and creamy. Serve immediately.
