I was trying to make some dips and sauces to bring to a friend’s party sometime ago, and was suddenly hit with a brainstorm to make some Hollandaise sauce. It was probably remembering the delicious Eggs Benedict that my grandmother used to make.
I went online and found many recipes for Hollandaise sauce, but after experimenting with several of them, I find that using a whisk for Hollandaise is just way too troublesome. Instead, I just use my best blender. Here’s my fool-proof way of making Hollandaise sauce with a blender:
- 1/2 cup of butter (one stick)
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- cayenne pepper or Tabasco/hot pepper sauce
The mixture should begin to thicken by now. When the butter has all been poured in, add in the lemon juice (I prefer fresh lemon juice so that the tang of the lemon is sharper), and cayenne pepper or hot pepper sauce. Sometimes I like a little of both. You should stop the blender to add the pepper if you need to open the lid. Then turn it back on to blend it in.
You can add mustard too, if you like that, or substitute the lemon juice with white wine. If you think the sauce is too thick, you can add more lemon juice.
After everything has been blended, stop the blender and serve the delicious Hollandaise sauce either on Eggs Benedict, steamed vegetables, steak, or as a dip.
