Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Oh, how I love lemony hollandaise sauce! Eggs Benedict has always been a favorite breakfast treat for me but I rarely make it at home. I stumbled upon this recipe for an easy blender hollandaise sauce on Simply Recipes that I had to try. I normally make my grandmother’s recipe for hollandaise but this recipe uses a blender which had me intrigued. Sadly, my blender needs more substance in the container before it will blend, so I had to do some sideways blending action to get it to work. I don’t recommend this method!!!!  Next time, I will either double the recipe so I have enough liquid to blend or I’ll use a handheld immersion blender to make it super simple. The hollandaise turned out perfectly! It was creamy and smooth and had just the right amount of lemon. We all thought it was excellent except for my son who discovered he does NOT like hollandaise sauce. More for the rest of us!

How to Make Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Melt the butter slowly in a small saucepan. Try not to let it boil because you want the moisture in the butter to remain there and not steam away.

While the butter is slowly melting, blend the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper in a blender or with an immersion blender. Blend for about 20-30 seconds or until lightened in color. The friction from the blender blades will heat up the yolks a little bit while the blending will add air into the hollandaise, which makes it lighter.

Turn the blender down to its very lowest speed and slowly drizzle in the melted butter while the blender is running. Continue to blend for a few seconds to make sure the butter is fully combined.

Taste and add more lemon or salt if desired. Pour into a serving container and store in a warm place until used. You can also place the serving container into a shallow bowl of hot water to help keep it warm. Use within the hour.

  1. I love dishes with hollandaise but rarely make them at home – with a easy sauce recipe I may change that.

  2. I was going to get really excited until you said what a pain it was to blend this lol. I guess it’s back to the whisk method!
