This hollandaise uses a microwave instead of a double boiler, cutting back tremendously on prep time and mess. The melted butter provides enough heat to cook the sauce. This recipe makes enough sauce to cover 2 servings of eggs Benedict.

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in microwave at 15-second intervals, stirring after each interval to prevent popping, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk lemon juice, salt, and dill into melted butter; cook in microwave an additional 10 seconds. Whisk egg yolks into butter mixture vigorously until smooth, about 30 seconds. Whisk boiling water in gradually until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute more.

It s OK. It sure was quick and easy. Mine came out kind of watery. Kind of heavy on the buttery flavor side. It got me through tonight s dinner but I will probably not make it again. Read More

Great flavor very tasty - I did use 1/8 tsp dried dill as I was out of fresh! I love the addition of the dill but the sauce was a little thinner than I like. I'll make it again but will try it in a double boiler instead. Read More

Added a little more water to it to get it creamy and a nice light yellow color. If it seems to thicken up on you added some hot water a tablespoon at a time and whisk it up good. We will be making again. Read More

Easy and elegant recipe for a simple week night entree. I didn't have white wine,and a family member who doesn't like any wine,I had to substitute 1/4 cup of lemon juice with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and marinaded for 1 hr. I made a quick microwave recipe on this site for the hollandaise, ( probably better then packaged anyway!). I coated the chicken with almond flour,and browned it on the skillet first,then placed in a baking dish and topped with frozen asparagus spears. I poured the hollandaise sauce on top and baked in the oven for 25 minutes at 350. Delicious! Read More
