WEEK #11 – HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
It was only about two years ago that I first tried hollandaise sauce..not because it’s hard to make, but because the sound of it scared me. Once Hubbyman forced me to try a bit of his eggs Benedict I was all in. It was amazing….what had I been missing all these years. We were given a packet mix in a gift basket a couple years ago for Christmas, so I made it…it was amazing. But…..yes there is always a but…..there were so many weird ingredients. A quick google search and I found out it really is only a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home. Plus you only need a blender instead of heating up the kitchen and dirtying up a pot (although it can be made in a saucepan if you don’t have a blender).
This is so easy and uses regular ingredients that there is no reason you can’t make it quickly at home. In fact, it was quicker than making it with the packet (and it tastes better too).
I couldn’t figure out how to make vegan hollandaise sauce, but it is naturally gluten free and can be made dairy free if needed.
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 4 tbsp butter, melted and hot
- Salt to taste
- Melt butter in a microwave safe dish for 45-60 seconds (work fast, you want the butter hot when adding to the egg mixture).
- In a blender, pulse egg yolk, lemon juice, and cayenne. Then slowly drizzle in hot butter while blending until sauce is formed. Season with salt to taste.
- Add to eggs and toast for a yummy breakfast!
