Hollandaise Sauce image

Hollandaise sauce is easy with this foolproof brunch recipe from Tyler Florence on Food Network; the trick is to use a wire whisk and a clean bowl.

Provided by Tyler Florence

Categories     condiment

Time 20m

Yield 1 cup

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
Pinch cayenne
Pinch salt
8 slices Canadian bacon
4 English muffins, split
2 teaspoons white vinegar
8 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste
Hollandaise Sauce, recipe above
Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish


  • Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl and until the mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water (or use a double boiler,) the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful not to let the eggs get too hot or they will scramble. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt. Cover and place in a warm spot until ready to use for the eggs benedict. If the sauce gets too thick, whisk in a few drops of warm water before serving.
  • Brown the bacon in a medium skillet and toast the English muffins, cut sides up, on a baking sheet under the broiler. Fill a 10-inch nonstick skillet half full of water. Add white vinegar to the cooking water. This will make the egg white cook faster so it does not spread. Bring to a slow boil. Gently break 1 of the eggs into the water taking care not to break it. Repeat with remaining eggs. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook 3 1/2 minutes until the egg white is set and yolk remains soft. Remove with a slotted spoon, allowing the egg to drain. To assemble: Lay a slice of Canadian bacon on top of each muffin half, followed by a poached egg. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon hollandaise sauce over the eggs. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Hollandaise Sauce image

One of the "mother" sauces in classic French cuisine, this fundamental is perhaps best known in the United States as a decadent topping to eggs benedict. While this is indeed a wonderful way to use hollandaise, this creamy, rich, lemon-tinged sauce has so many other uses! And because hollandaise sauce is so easy to make-containing only butter, eggs and lemon-it's worth committing to memory.

Categories     Condiment

Time 15m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 3

3 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup firm butter


  • In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, vigorously stir egg yolks and lemon juice with wire whisk. Add 1/4 cup of the butter. Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly with wire whisk, until butter is melted.
  • Add remaining 1/4 cup butter. Continue stirring vigorously until butter is melted and sauce is thickened. (Be sure butter melts slowly so eggs have time to cook and thicken sauce without curdling.) If the sauce curdles (mixture begins to separate), add about 1 tablespoon boiling water and beat vigorously with wire whisk or hand beater until it's smooth.
  • Serve immediately. Store covered in refrigerator. To serve refrigerated sauce, reheat over very low heat and stir in a small amount of water.

Quick and Easy Hollandaise Sauce in the Microwave image

Quick and easy hollandaise sauce. Makes enough for 2 servings of eggs benedict or asparagus. I've tried several ways to make hollandaise sauce; this method works every time and is very quick.

Time 6m

Yield 1 1/2 cups sauce, 10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 5

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup heavy cream (or whipping cream)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • Cut the butter into four pieces, place in a 1-quart glass measure or bowl, and microwave, covered with a paper towel, on high, until almost melted, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Remove butter from the microwave and stir until completely melted.
  • Separate eggs, placing the yolks in a small bowl and setting the whites aside for another purpose. Beat the yolks well with a whisk or fork, then add to the butter and stir well.
  • Add cream and lemon juice to egg mixture and stir well. Microwave mixture, uncovered, on high, until just slightly thick, about 1 to 2 minutes, stopping every 20 seconds to stir with a fork. Remove sauce from microwave and stir in mustard.

To re-warm, cover container with plastic wrap, pierce wrap with a knife to vent, and microwave on 50 percent power until heated through, about 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through. Do not allow sauce to boil.

2 thin slices of prosciutto
2 English muffins, sliced in half and toasted
Easy Hollandaise Sauce (recipe follows)
Minced fresh chives, for serving
2 extra-large egg yolks, at room temperature
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter

Once it thickens to the consistency of gravy, remove the pot from the heat.
