Start to Finish 15 mins
Hollandaise Sauce
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  butter
  • 3  beaten egg yolks
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  •  salt
  •  white pepper
Directions

1. Cut the butter into thirds and bring it to room temperature.

2. In the top of a double boiler combine egg yolks, water, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add a piece of the butter. Place over boiling water (upper pan should not touch water). Cook, stirring rapidly with a whisk, until butter melts and sauce begins to thicken. Add the remaining butter, a piece at a time, stirring constantly until melted. Continue to cook and stir until sauce thickens (about 2 minutes more). Immediately remove from heat. If sauce is too thick or curdles, immediately whisk in 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water. Serve with cooked vegetables, poultry, fish, or eggs. Makes 3/4 cup sauce (twelve 1-tablespoon servings).
