  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup salted butter


  • Place the egg yolks and lemon juice into a blender container. Cover, and blend for about 10 seconds. 
  • Next, place the butter into a microwave-safe dish and heat for approximately one minute, or until melted and hot. *Make sure the butter stays hot, not lukewarm, for proper emulsion.
  • With the blender at high speed, pour the butter into the blender container in a thin stream until all the butter has been added. The sauce should be thickened and pale yellow. 


  • If using unsalted butter, add ¼ teaspoon of salt. 
  • Run sauce through a fine strainer to remove lumps or excess air bubbles (from blending).
  • A dash of hot sauce or a ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper is a great addition to this sauce.
  • This recipe is small batch. To feed more hungry people, make a double or triple batch.
