Who knew homemade hollandaise sauce could be so easy? Our blender version comes together in minutes with zero effort, no whisking required.
Here’s A Video Showing How To Make This Super-Easy Hollandaise Sauce:
I love hollandaise sauce. On poached eggs, on asparagus or licked off a spoon.
But I only made it once. It was such a pain. You have to do a lot of whisking in a double boiler to slowly thicken the eggs without cooking and scrambling them. Here’s a basic hollandaise recipe. See what I mean by all that whisking?
Learning to make it in a blender changed everything. It’s so easy to do. And no whisking. None at all!
Step-By-Step Tutorial For Making Hollandaise In The Blender:
Separate the eggs. You only need the yolks here.
You put egg yolks in a blender with a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne.
Then melt some butter until it’s warm and steamy. I do this in the microwave.
Pulse the eggs to get them mixed up a bit.
Then run it on medium speed while you slowly drizzle in the warm butter.
By the time the butter has been completely added, the mixture will be thick. Continue to blend for another 30 seconds.
That’s it! So easy. And seriously delicious. Now that I’ve learned how to make hollandaise sauce the easy way, I make it all the time.
