Easy Eggs Benedict
Mother's Day Recipe
Hollandaise Sauce Ingredients
  1. 1 egg yolk
  2. 1 tsp. water or lemon juice
  3. 1/8 tsp. salt (or one pinch)
  4. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick or 4 oz.)
  5. 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  1. 1. Using a wand mixer and tall skinny container that will accommodate the mixer (the mixer will usually come with one but wide mouth mason jar will also do the trick) place egg yolk, water, and salt into container.
  2. 2. Heat butter to 220F in microwave or in a small sauce pan.
  3. 3. Place mixer into container and turn on.
  4. 4. Start slowly pouring in butter with a steady stream.
  5. 5. The heat from the butter will cook the egg.
  6. 6. Add a pinch of cayenne and serve immediately.
  7. 7. Hollandaise will not store well and should be used fresh. It will hold as long as you keep it warm. Discard after two hours.
