Gather your ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2-1 cup butter

Optional Add-Ons

  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Few dashes of sriracha sauce (optional, for extra spice)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Tip: Use high-quality ingredients for the best results. Fresh egg yolks and real butter are essential for achieving the perfect texture and flavor.

Let’s blend!

  1. Prep the egg yolks: In your blender, combine the egg yolks, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and cayenne pepper. Blend for a few seconds, just until combined.
  2. Slowly incorporate the butter: With the blender running on low speed, slowly drizzle the hot melted butter through the top opening. This gradual addition is crucial for creating a smooth and emulsified sauce. Tip: If the sauce seems too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of hot water, one tablespoon at a time, while blending on low speed, until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Spice it up! Once the sauce is emulsified and thickened, stop the blender. Add the Tabasco sauce, paprika, and desired amount of sriracha (if using). Pulse the blender a few times to combine.
  4. Fresh touch: Finally, stir in the chopped fresh cilantro for a burst of flavor and vibrant color.

Voila! Your blender hollandaise sauce is ready to be enjoyed.
