Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon cold water

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ cup butter

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, cold water, salt and pepper. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Gradually whisk yolk mixture into butter. Continue whisking over low heat for 8 minutes, or until sauce is thickened. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

If your sauce breaks and the butter and egg begin to separate, simply remove from the heat, add a splash of cold water, and whisk very fast. This should save your Hollandaise.
