Easy Hollandaise Sauce

If you’re familiar with my recipes, you know I don’t just throw the word “easy” around.

Well, this Easy Hollandaise Sauce is no exception. Instead of using a double boiler, I use a blender.

Unconventional? Yes. Delicious? Yup. The result is a smooth, creamy, buttery homemade Hollandaise sauce.

Who says you need to make the process difficult? Not me. The hardest thing you’ll have to do with this recipe is find things to pour it over.

Try it on some steamed asparagus or Eggs Benedict (one of my favorite breakfasts!), for starters. Both are tasty options.

Just be sure to keep the Hollandaise sauce warm prior to serving. When it cools, it starts to separate. Though it’ll still mostly taste the same if it separates, it won’t be as pretty.

To keep warm, you could just stick the blender container in a bowl of semi-hot water.

  1. This LOOKs easy, but I cant help but notice that this sauce is completely broken. Hollandaise is a very delicate sauce and it CAN be made with a blender, but it uses a lot more egg yolks to stabilize it.,otherwise, great recipe!
