It's a rich lemony/buttery sauce that is great on eggs Benedict, broccoli, asparagus, oysters Rockefeller, grilled salmon, or just out of a spoon!

I love the stuff.

This is my tried and true:

BLENDER HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

3 egg yolks
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
Dash of cayenne pepper
1/2 c. butter

Put egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne in blender jar. Heat butter in small pan until bubbly. Do not burn. Cover blender and whirl at high speed for 2 or 3 seconds. Remove center section of cover or entire cover and at high speed pour in hot butter in a thin, steady stream. It will take about 30 seconds. Don't use residue in pan.

Leftover Hollandaise may be kept refrigerated in a tightly covered jar 2 or 3 days. Don't let it stand around in warm temperature. To re-use, heat in top of double boiler over barely simmering water and stir constantly.

I have to try this. Sounds delicious. I need something to serve over my poached eggs so I don't become bored with them.

If you put a warmed slice (I like mine almost 1/4 in thick) of Canadian Bacon on a plate, top it with some wilted baby spinach, the poached egg, and heavily drizzle some hollandaise sauce over the top, you will be in heaven, I promise

Heavenly is right. That is my usual order when eating out for breakfast. Also good with asparagus instead of the spinach.

Our local restaurant, the Cookhouse, does Cookhouse Eggs Benedict - they use smoked pulled pork (I get mine no English muffin of course) and the eggs on that and then they add some chipotle to the hollandaise and top the eggs - OH MOMMA! They are so GOOOOD!

If need a quick hollandaise like sauce: Put a saucepan over low heat or in a small double boiler. Put in a glob of some good quality mayo with a dash of cayenne or teeny bit of ground mustard. Whisk in fresh lemon juice until it is saucelike. Keep whisking until warmed thru.

It is delish on vegetables and salmon and/or poached eggs.
My MIL uses this with asparagus and ham.

I've always found fried egg, bacon and mayo sandwhiches (or even just fried eggs, without the bacon) really good, and now I make it with Kevinpa yeast bread toast. I'll have to try putting mayo on the bread and this over the eggs.

I just wanted to add something I learned today-- why my blender hollandaise has been failing and how to fix it!

The butter has to be WICKED hot so that it cooks and thickens the eggs.

If it's not (here's my revelation today)-- put it in a pan over a pan of hot (not boiling) water-- double boiler is another term for this

Whisk until you get the thickness you want, and remove from heat. Mine took maybe a minute or 2. Easy-peasy as they say on food tv.

And I agree, it's great on everything, and I also like it cold (it sort of solidifies, but I'm ok with that).

I might make it my mission to find more and more things to eat Hollandaise with
