Happy Hollandaise To You

Happy Hollandaise

I have always had a “Love – Hate” relationship with Hollandaise sauce.  As much as I love the rich  and creamy lemon flavor when it came to making Hollandaise sauce it would come out either too thin or it would curdle. So after a long search I found a recipe on-line that did not require using a double boiler. This recipe uses a blender to make the best Hollandaise sauce I have ever eaten. Now I have a “Love – Love” relationship with this velvety sauce. I serve it over asparagus, sea food, crab cakes or eggs Benedict. “Happy Hollandaise to you and to all a good sauce.”

Original recipe by Chellebelle.

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
  • 1/2 cup butter


  1. In the container of a blender, combine the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce. Cover, and blend for about 5 seconds.
  1. Place the butter in a glass measuring cup. Heat butter in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until completely melted and hot. Set the blender on high-speed, remove center cap of blender lid and pour the butter into the egg yolk mixture in a thin stream. It will thicken almost immediately. Keep the sauce warm for serving by placing the blender container into a pan of hot water.

Here is a link to a video that shows how easy the whole process is:



About Renee Lalane
I was born and raised in New York. Later in life I moved to Central Florida. I am of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Puerto Rican and Cuban decent. I have been working in the restaurant business for most of my life and have owned five along the way. Recently I became aware of the fact that as my elders passed away their recipes passed with them. I call these recipes "Heirloom Recipes" I am dedicating this site to saving recipes from extinction. Not only recipes from my family but from yours. Do you have a unique recipe that needs saving? Send it to me along with a name and picture of your relative and I will review it and possibly post it as an Heirloom Recipe.
