Hollandaise Sauce

Hollandaise sauce is a simple, quick, nourishing sauce you can use at breakfast, lunch or dinner! Only 3 Base Ingredients! Then add spices to your liking!
Hollandaise Sauce: 

  • You'll need a double boiler (ie: metal bowl over saucepan with water, just make sure water isn't touching the bowl.)   In bowl, place 3 pastured egg yolks (or 1 if for 1 person)
  • Whisk yolks in bowl over hot, but not boiling water. 
  • When eggs get hot but still runny (no scrambled eggs! keep whisking!) add 1-2 Tblsp Butter. Keep whisking. 
  • When it starts to thicken, take off of heat and add a few squeezes of lemon juice.  If it's too thick add a bit of water until it's your desired consistency.  
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Douse your breakfast in it!

  Here is my  House-made English Muffins Recipe (cooked in coconut oil!), Then Topped with  Eggs, Bacon, Avocado and covered in Hollandaise sauce!

This breakfast was inspired by Cafe Niche in SLC, UT:
  Here is an article from the newspaper about this breakfast sandwich, " ...even before we sat down to a post-work meal, a bit of buzz had already worked its way around Niche regulars, one of whom heartily recommended the changes to me. One statement in particular struck me. “They make their own English muffins,” my friend said. “They’re gorgeous. You have to try the breakfast sandwich.” 
    The sandwich ($7) is offered daily and on the brunch menu. And yes, the English muffin — basically a large crumpet, nooks and crannies and all — is house-made and yes, it’s gorgeous. I would’ve enjoyed it on its own, toasted with a side of butter and good jam. 
    But chef/owners Ethan LappĂ© and Adrian Alvarado upped the ante by filling the English muffin with thick-sliced bacon, scrambled eggs (poached is another great option), soft green avocado slices and a ladleful of the day’s hollandaise sauce. I was in heaven...."

I'm still in heaven recreating this delicious breakfast meal!
