Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Dried dill can be used in place of fresh; reduce quantity to 1/8 teaspoon.
