"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." — scottki

lemon, juiced, or to taste
salted butter, melted
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.
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.
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!
I microwaved in 7 second intervals and whisked like a madwomen in between, and it came out smooth and creamy. This is a keeper.
Delicious, fast, and super easy! Love it! Thanks!
