Many folks are afraid of hollandaise sauce, are you? Some consider consuming it will make them body fat. (It will if you eat it each day, so don’t eat it every day.)
If you are like me, the thought of producing hollandaise conjures up visions of toque clad chefs with big bowls and even bigger whisks swearing since the beautiful sauce they have spent the final many minutes vigorously whisking has separated on them, “Merde!”
I have been desperately afraid of creating this sauce considering that permanently. (Not afraid of consuming it mind you, I’ve by no means met an Eggs Benedict I didn’t like, or eat.) To conquer this dread I asked my buddy Hank to display me how to make it.
OMG. Hank’s hollandaise didn’t separate, and he didn’t swear (any far more than typical), but the function! The beads of sweat forming on this man’s forehead as he whipped people egg yolks and butter into submission.
I was dreading the attempt. Hank has arms of steel. I have arms of, hmmm, a younger, willowy sapling? What ever. Not steel.
Topping With Hollandaise Sauce
The remedy? Blender hollandaise. It’s simple! Even I can do it. Which indicates even you can do it. So I motivate you to try it, if you like me have been intimidated by the considered of trying this sauce.
Use it over fish, steamed vegetables like broccoli or asparagus, or on top of poached eggs, bacon, and English muffins for Eggs Benedict.

Effortless Blender Hollandaise Sauce Recipe
- Prep time: ten minutes
- Yield: Tends to make about one cup of sauce, excellent for about four-six servings.
- three egg yolks (see how to separate eggs)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- one/two teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
- ten tablespoons unsalted butter (if employing salted butter, skip the additional salt)
1 Melt the butter: Melt the butter gradually in a little pot. Consider not to let it boil—you want the moisture in the butter to stay there and not steam away.
two Blend egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, until lightened in shade: Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne (if making use of) into your blender. Blend the egg yolk mixture at a medium to medium high pace till it lightens in color, about twenty-30 seconds.
The friction produced by the blender blades will heat the yolks a bit. The blending action will also introduce a minor air into them, creating your hollandaise a bit lighter.
three Decrease blender setting, slowly drizzle in melted butter: When the yolks have lightened in color, flip the blender down to its lowest setting (if you only have one velocity on your blender it will even now function), and drizzle in the sizzling melted butter slowly, although the blender is going.
Carry on to mix for an additional couple seconds right after the butter is all incorporated.
four Change salt and lemon juice to taste: Turn off the blender and taste the sauce. It need to be buttery, lemony and just lightly salty. If it is not salty or lemony ample, you can include a tiny lemon juice or salt to taste.
If you want a thinner consistency, add a small warm water. Pulse briefly to integrate the substances one particular far more time.
Keep till required in a warm spot, like on or next to the stovetop. Use inside of an hour or so.
