Delicious and creamy homemade hollandaise sauce.



  1. Melt butter and make sure it is just warm, not hot.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks with lemon juice and spices until smooth.
  3. Put the bowl with the egg yolks on top of a small pan of boiling water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water) or in a double boiler.
  4. Immediately whisk the egg yolks constantly while slowly adding the melted butter in.
  5. Once well incorporated, continue to whisk for 2-3 minutes (approximately) until it starts to thicken.
  6. Use immediately, or remove from heat and cover until serving.
  7. If it thickens or starts to separate, mix in a 1/2 tsp or so of warm water before serving.
