Default Hand blender Hollandaise (easy!)

Other members have posted beautiful photos of their Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce.

My pictures are not so pretty, but the point of this post is an easy way to make a small amount of "blender Hollandaise" by using a hand blender and the chopper cup that comes with it.

Hand Blender Hollandaise Sauce
(makes enough for 4 Eggs Benedicts, about 1/2 cup)

2 egg yolks
1/2 stick butter
1 1/2 T lemon juice
couple dashes hot sauce

Nuke butter in a small microwavable cup. Cool slightly.

Place egg yolks, lemon juice, hot sauce in hand blender chopper cup. Put the top of the chopper cup on and blend for a few seconds.

Drizzle butter, a little at time, into the chopper cup, blending after each addition.

Set the chopper cup in a small pot of warm water, to keep warm and to thicken the sauce a bit, while you are toasting the English muffins, poaching the eggs, and warming the Canadian bacon.

Assemble all and enjoy!

Beautiful eggs benedict! I don't know why I've always thought making hollandaise was hard. I'm sure that I'd want to throw my Knorr's out the window after tasting the real stuff.

Don't say that!!! I've made my own via both quick methods & traditional methods & I STILL always have Knorr's in the pantry. For one thing, it still makes an extremely decent quick & flavorful sauce for an impromptu Benedict or to toss with broccoli or asparagus or top crab cakes, etc., etc.

In addition, when I'm serving folks who cannot consume or should not consume raw egg yolks, Knorr happily comes to the rescue.

Nothing wrong with Knorr products at all.

>>always have . . .

metwoer. Hollandaise and Bearnaise.

the "classic" prep is a bit daunting and time consuming and prone to the oops! factor.
agreed it's not "hard" nor "rocket science" - if you do it 2x/wk you'd be a spot expert.

Knorr's - what a kick - that's "my brand" as well - I'd also say it make a darned decent sauce pretty darn quick & easy.

one of the best packaged gravy mixi was McCormicks "Hunter Sauce" - which they discontinued. I think it had a 'bad' marketing image - nasty old Bambi killers.... - it was one of my favs for pork.

I "tweak" Knorr's mixes a bit - add fresh lemon juice to the "Hollandaise" & fresh chopped Tarragon to the "Bearnaise". I used to add a little dry sherry to their "Newburg" sauce (which was really good), but just like ChowderMan's "Hunter Sauce", Knorr discontinued it.

I made this hand blender Hollandaise again tonight, but doubled it for 4 Benedicts.

Boy, the sauce really DOES thicken up nicely when the blender cup is placed in a small pot of hot water on the stove!

Delicious!

Try Knorr's Peppercorn Sauce - tis good

Something I read somewhere : If you make hollandaise or bearnaise and need to hold it for a while, put it in a thermos. The sauce won't break and it remains warm.
