DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in the microwave.
  • In a medium saucepan, make a thin roux using half the butter and the flour.
  • Whisk in the milk a little at a time until thick and smooth.
  • Lowering heat to minimum, add the egg yolks and remaining butter, stirring constantly, being careful not to let the yolks curdle.
  • Gradually add the lemon juice; finish with salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper or paprika.
  • 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.
