Easy to Make Hollandaise Sauce Using a Blender


If you're the one who always orders eggs Benedict every time you wind up at Sunday morning brunch—for the mere fact that you can't possibly imagine making hollandaise from scratch—I've got some great news for you: you can. It's simple! The traditional method is tricky, labor intensive (the arm workout is insane!), and is easily over-heated. But this blender method makes it nearly foolproof. Now you can be the one to host a Sunday brunch with the perfect hollandaise, even if you're the only guest.

  • Make hollandaise to order, it won't keep, and it's difficult to re-heat. It takes only a few minutes in the blender so have your dish ready to go when you start to make it.

Step 3: Add Hot Butter to the Blender

While the blender is running on high, remove the stopper from the lid and slowly pour the melted butter in a slow steady stream until all the butter has been added to the blender. The sauce should be thick and creamy.
