Here’s a quick and easy version of the classic French hollandaise sauce made in a blender. Read for eggs benedict in 10 minutes!
Many people are afraid of hollandaise sauce, are you? Some think eating it will make them fat. (It will if you eat it every day, so don?t eat it every day.)
VIDEO! EASY BLENDER HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
If you are like me, the thought of making hollandaise conjures up visions of?toque?clad chefs with big bowls and even bigger whisks swearing because the beautiful sauce they have spent the last several minutes vigorously whisking has separated on them, ?Merde!?
I have been desperately afraid of making this sauce since forever. (Not afraid of eating it mind you, I?ve never met an?Eggs Benedict?I didn?t like, or eat.) To overcome this fear I asked my friend?Hank?to show me how to make it.
OMG. Hank?s hollandaise didn?t separate, and he didn?t swear (any more than usual), but the work! The beads of sweat forming on this man?s forehead as he whipped those egg yolks and butter into submission.
I was dreading the attempt. Hank has arms of steel. I have arms of, hmmm, a young, willowy sapling? Whatever. Not steel.
TOPPING WITH HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
The solution? Blender hollandaise. It?s easy! Even I can do it. Which means even you can do it. So I encourage you to try it, if you like me have been intimidated by the thought of attempting this sauce.
