All About

Hollandaise Sauces

At once buttery and light, hollandaise sauce has a delicate lemony creaminess. In a perfectly smooth hollandaise sauce, melted butter emulsifies with egg yolks and lemon juice. You can achieve this with vigorous whisking or a blender. Either way, the resulting warm sauce tastes lovely with eggs, vegetables, and fish.

recipe

This smooth, creamy sauce is most often associated with Eggs Benedict, but also makes a fine accompaniment to steamed fish and vegetable dishes. Raw eggs should not be used in food prepared for pregnant women, young children, or anyone else whose health is compromised.
