Recipe Notes

  • Store until needed in a warm spot, e.g. next to the stovetop.
  • If using salted butter, skip the added salt.
  • The friction generated by the blender blades will heat the yolks a bit. The blending action will also introduce a little air into them, making the hollandaise a bit lighter.
  • For a thinner consistency, add a little warm water. Pulse briefly to incorporate the ingredients one more time.
