Hollandaise Sauce: What is it?

A rich and creamy emulsion recognized for its silky texture and tart flavor is called hollandaise sauce.

Its silky consistency makes it a favorite for Eggs Benedict because poached eggs and other delectables go well with it.

Recipe for Hollandaise Sauce:


  • 3 large egg yolks

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and clarified

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

  • Salt to taste

Methods of Cooking:

  1. Set up a double boiler by adding a heat-resistant bowl on top of a saucepan that has a few inches of water in it. Check to make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water's surface.

  2. The egg yolks should be whisked in the heatproof bowl until they are just beginning to turn foamy.

  3. Heat the mixture: Bring the water in the saucepan to a moderate simmer over low to medium heat. To create a double boiler appearance, set the bowl containing the egg yolks over a pot of heating water. The yolks should still be whisked while they warm up.

  4. Add the melted butter gradually, whisking constantly as you drip the clarified butter into the warmed egg yolks. The butter must be added gradually to keep the sauce from splitting.

  5. To get a smooth consistency, keep mixing the liquid until it thickens and takes on a creamy texture. The process can take a few minutes, so be patient.

  6. Add lemon juice and cayenne pepper: To give the sauce a lovely tang and a mild kick, stir in a pinch of cayenne pepper and fresh lemon juice.

  7. Taste the Hollandaise sauce and, if needed, season with a little salt. Keep in mind that adding a little salt can significantly improve the flavor.

  8. Remove the bowl from the heat and serve the Hollandaise sauce over the poached eggs Benedict as soon as it reaches the ideal consistency.


A skill that will unquestionably wow your brunch guests is the ability to make the ideal Hollandaise sauce, which will raise the bar for your Egg Benedict. Rich flavors and a velvety texture that define this traditional French sauce are combined in this easy recipe. So grab out your whisk and get ready to enjoy a delicious treat: the most delectable Egg Benedict with your very own handmade Hollandaise sauce!
