Blender Hollandaise

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by sugarpea

Handy recipe from "The Joy of Cooking". Much faster and more foolproof than handmade Hollandaise but paler and less flavorful. The recipe relies on the entire quantity of heated butter to cook the egg yolks so don't try to make a smaller batch.

Thanks for posting this. I used to make this a lot, then I misplaced my Joy of Cooking (recently found!) Very easy and tastes great, especially on asparagus or grilled salmon.
