How To Make Hollandaise Sauce In Blender
If you’ve shied away from making this creamy sauce in the past because you thought it would be too difficult, I beg you to take a second look.
Hollandaise sauce made in the blender is ready in one minute, and it couldn’t be easier to make!
EGG YOLKS ONLY Simply start with egg yolks, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne pepper in the blender. Give them a few whirls to blend the egg yolks and get some air into them. You’re looking for the egg yolks to turn a pale yellow color.
MELTED BUTTER Slowly add in melted butter, while the blender is on low, and the sauce will thicken slightly.
Voila! You’re done!

Can You Make Ahead of Time?
Once you make your Hollandaise Sauce you’ll want to use it fresh, within the hour. You can prepare the sauce ahead of time, but it does take a little bit longer to reheat than it would to just make it fresh.
Hollandaise Sauce is best when served fresh, but can last in the fridge for up to 2 days.
How To Reheat Hollandaise Sauce:
In order to not “break” the sauce, you’ll need to reheat it slowly and gently.
MICROWAVE: heat at 20% power in 15 second increments, stirring in between until the sauce is heated through
STOVE TOP: bring a pot of water to a boil and add the sauce to a glass bowl that fits on top of the pot, without touching the water. This is a double-boiler method. Whisk the sauce gently until it is heated through.
You’re going to feel like a true chef with this simple recipe and everyone will be super impressed!
