This is the same great recipe, it was just time to give it a facelift.
This Easy Hollandaise Sauce – in less than 60 seconds! is unbelievably quick and easy to make. You’ll be putting up eggs benedict in a flash. The sauce is emulsified with a stick blender in a jar and is foolproof.
The trick for making this is using a container or jar that the head of the stick blender just fits into. It creates a vortex and combines the fats. Making this hollandaise is a sort of backwards way to making classic hollandaise. Instead of heating your eggs and adding the butter, you add hot butter to cold egg yolk. No more whisking and whisking over hot water. Voila!
keeping it warm
You can make this hollandaise ahead of time and keep it warm in a soup thermos for up to an hour
