Keyword: hollandaise sauce
Servings: 4- 6 serves (makes about 1 cup of sauce)
Pinchofcracked black pepper
1tablespoonfresh lemon juice*(adjust to your taste preference)
1/2cupunsalted butter(4 oz | 125 g)
Combine eggs yolks, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a blender jug.
Microwave the butter in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments until completely melted and hot to the touch. Alternatively: Melt the butter in a small saucepan until beginning to foam.
Cover the blender with a lid and blend the yolk mixture at high speed for 3 seconds.
With the blender still running, uncover (or take out the middle plastic piece from the lid) and slowly pour the hot melted butter in a thin stream.
The sauce will begin to thicken with half of the butter blended in.
Taste test and season with a little extra salt and pepper, if needed.
*Substitute lemon juice for white vinegar.The friction of the blender blades along with the hot butter will somewhat cook the egg during emulsion. Consume with caution. To reduce a risk of salmonella or other food-related illnesses, use good quality, fresh, refrigerated eggs.
