An eggs benedict isn't complete without a draping of hollandaise sauce on top. The classic French sauce is traditionally made by gently heating egg yolks over a double boiler, then slowly (and painstakingly) whisking in melted butter until it becomes a creamy emulsion. In this recipe, we get the same silky sauce without the hassle by letting the blender do all the work.

  • Serve immediately or transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm; serve within thirty minutes. If sauce is too thick, thin to desired consistency by whisking in hot water one tablespoon at a time.
