"Quick and easy hollandaise sauce. Makes enough for 2 servings of eggs benedict or asparagus. I've tried several ways to make hollandaise sauce; this method works every time and is very quick. My kids love it. I put poached egg on toast or biscuit and top with sauce. I also add crumbled sausage with jalapeno and garlic."

lemon, juiced, or to taste
salted butter, melted
This is a great recipe which is very good the way they suggest you use it. This time however, I added a tablespoon of mayo before melting the butter and whisked it together before the heating step. It added some great creaminess that was lacking from the initial version and held it together more when spooning it over my eggs. WIN!
Honestly, this may not be quite as rich or smooth as the somewhat labor-intensive hollandaise sauce that I make, but it was pretty darn good. I did end up adding a little more lemon juice and cayenne to suit our tastes. I took the photo right when it came out of the microwave, and the butter had separated a bit. But all it really needed was a good whisk, and then the texture was spot on, and stayed that way. Served this on Ham Cups and Eggs, a recipe on this site. Thanks, scottki, we enjoyed your quick recipe.
I would say it needs a little longer in the microwave too depending on how hot the butter is being drizzled in. I like the 10 sec increments.
This was quick, easy, and delicious! I also added 1Tbsp of mayo, and it turned out great! After reading other reviews, I cooked mine in 10 second increments, whisking in between. Great recipe,
This is by far the easiest and surprisingly the best hollandaise I have ever made. I love the sour back-taste in hollandaise, so I added more lemon juice and more cayenne for more heat. By using an initial microwave time of about 15 seconds, whisking, and then increments of about 10 seconds, whisking vigorously each time, I had excellent control over the amazing finished product. Eggs benedict will be on my breakfast menu more often. Bon appetite!
So tasty and easy! I had to microwave it longer, maybe 40 seconds. I just did it in 10 second increments until it thickened up. Will be making this again. Thank you!
My girlfriend made this for breakfast, I couldn't believe how fast she was done and how good it was...totally worth it.
This was super easy and very delicious, only added a splash of white wine vinegar to thin it out. I thought I had a packet of the powder stuff and couldn't find it, so glad I will never used the packet stuff ever again!
