Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise Sauce

Serves 4     Preparation:  10 min.       Cooking: 10 min.          Total: 20 min.

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 tsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)1
  • pinch cayenne
  • pinch salt

Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl until the mixture has thickened and doubled in volume. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water (or use a double boiler); the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful not to let the eggs get too hot or they will scramble.

Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt. Cover and place in a warm spot until ready to use. If the sauce gets too thick, whisk in a few drops of warm water before serving.
