Hollandaise Sauce
Ingredients
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
Directions
  1. Melt the butter slowly in a small pot, try not to let it boil, you want the moisture in the butter to remain there and not steam away
  2. Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper and parsley into your blender.  Blend the egg yolk mixture at a medium to medium high speed until it is well blended, about 20-30 seconds
  3. The friction generated from the blende blades will heat the yolks a bit and the blending action will also introduce a little air into them, making your hollandaise a bit lighter
  4. Turn the blender down to its lowest setting and drizzle in the melted butter slowly, while the blender is still going, continue to blend for another couple seconds after the butter is all incorporated
  5. Turn off the blender and taste the sauce, add additional lemon juice and salt to taste.  For a thinner consistency, add a little warm water and pulse briefly to incorporate the ingredients one more time. 
  6. Store in a warm place, possibly next to the stove and use within an hour
