Yesterday, the hubbster posted his awesome Breakfast Skillet recipe. Whenever he makes this dish, (and when I’m feeling it), I whip up some hollandaise sauce. Now, I can hear the groans already, but I just want to tell you- I make it EASY.
Come on, guys, you know me by now. I don’t mess around. If the recipe says “this is finicky” or “requires constant supervision” or “bachelor’s degree required”, I don’t make it. I don’t care if it’s the best darn thing I’ll ever cook in my life- I don’t make it. Why? Because I’m normal, (as long as normal means marginally lazy and short on patience).
If you’re like me, this hollandaise sauce is for you.
EASY Hollandaise Sauce
Recipe originally pulled from Cooking: A Commonsense Guide. (an awesome cookbook, one I strongly recommend.)
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tbsp water
- ½ tbsp lemon juice
- 3 oz cooled, melted butter
- Combine all ingredients in the food processor for 10 seconds.
- With the motor running, add the butter in a thin stream.
- Believe it or not, that’s it. Boom. Hollandaise. Don’t you look smart?
Do you have any painfully easy sauce recipes? We’d love them. Put them in the comments.
