Quick, easy & authentic . . . it's great for us PWD (people with diabetes)! Drizzled over any cooked veggie makes it a gourmet dish!

1 jumbo egg or 2 egg yolks
2 capfuls lemon juice
dash of salt
dash of white pepper
1 stick of dairy butter, melted and HOT

Whisk the egg, lemon juice & seasonings together until frothy. While continuing to whisk, pour in a thin stream of the hot butter & continue pouring until all butter is incorporated into the egg mixture. If it hasn't thickened a little, give it a nudge in the microwave by 10-second zaps and stir well after each zap until it begins to thicken. As soon as it BEGINS to thicken, that's enough - it's done. Serve hot.

I bet I could eat the whole batch by myself!

Welcome to asparagus season!!!! YUMYUM!!!
Absolutely! Steamed asparagus with Hollandaise sauce is one of my favorites! Doesn't need anything else but some fresh pepper once you're ready to indulge!

This is one place I really jump the track on portion size. This prob'ly turns out at least 3/4 cupful of sauce, and the two of us usually polish off the entire recipe in one meal. I was thinking of making eggs benedict for supper tonight, and I think this thread just tipped me over! heheh!

I think you could prob'ly halve this recipe by using only the egg yolk, and half stick of butter.

And 10-4 on the asparagus, good buddies! :D :D :D

Thanks Shanny,, I'll try using 1/2 stick next time. I only used 2 T. and while it was good, I'm sure it will taste better using more butter!

I've never had homemade Hollandaise sauce, only had it in restaurants, so I'm not sure how it's supposed to taste! (hanging head)

Oh my - you jogged my memory back to when my kids were teenagers . . . 30+ years ago. :D They learned to cook at young ages, & some of their first excursions into the work force were restaurant food service (not fast food). When this episode took place, one was working in a chain restaurant where he learned their hollandaise was made from a packet of dry mix. Don't know if it was 'just add water' or quite how the sauce came about, but using this recipe, my offspring proceeded to show them how REAL hollandaise is done! lol! Sometimes moms can be bursting with pride at the very same time they're dying of embarrassment!
