Hollandaise Sauce is one of the classic 5 mother sauces and definitely one you should master. So come along with me as we make this heavenly sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce Step 1 – Clarified Butter

lender Hollandaise Sauce ingredients including egg yolks, lemon juice, and butter.

Clarified butter is achieved by melting butter over medium low heat until hot and foamy but not boiling.

You see the white foam on top of the melted butter? Those are the milk solids which you’ll discard. You can either skim them off the top or strain them out as you pour your butter into the sauce.

Hollandaise Sauce Step 2 – Whip Egg Yolks With Lemon Juice

In the bowl of a food processor or blender add your egg yolks along with the lemon juice, salt and pinch of cayenne pepper.

Hollandaise Sauce Step 3 – Drizzle in the Clarified Butter

With the blender still running, slowly drizzle in the hot clarified butter. Discard the milk solids.
