    Jedley's Note:

    Super-easy variation on the French classic that goes great with chicken, seafood, vegetables (especially asparagus!) and of course, those sturdy pillars of Sunday brunch, Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt the butter in the microwave.
    2. 2
      In a medium saucepan, make a thin roux using half the butter and the flour.
    3. 3
      Whisk in the milk a little at a time until thick and smooth.
    4. 4
      Lowering heat to minimum, add the egg yolks and remaining butter, stirring constantly, being careful not to let the yolks curdle.
    5. 5
      Gradually add the lemon juice; finish with salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper or paprika.
    6. 6
      Optional: since we're already straying from the classic technique and ingredients, why not add a touch of saffron, which doesn't affect the flavor so much as the color, giving the sauce a gorgeous yellow hue.

      really quick and easy to make! the lemon juice was a bit much for me but went well with the crabcakes. next time, i will cut back but only because it is a personal preference. thanks!

      Super easy, quick and absolutely delicious! I used fresh eggs from the farmers' market, so the hollandaise was plenty yellow from those incredible yolks.
