Friday Yay!!

I am going to start posting recipes once I get this rolling. I made my Hollandaise sauce from scratch which was something I never thought I could do. It was so easy! Here is the recipe.

Quick Hollandaise Sauce

3 egg yolks
7oz butter
1tbls lemon juice

Place egg yolks in a blender or food processor. Melt the butter in a small pan until bubbling. With the motor running, gradually add the hot butter in a steady stream until the sauce is thick and creamy. Add the lemon juice, and a little warm water if the sauce is too thick, then season to taste with pepper. Remove from blender or food processor and keep warm.

I like to add 2 tbls of fresh squeezed lemon juice. If you add tarragon it makes an awesom Bearnaise sauce. If you have left over sauce make sure you heat it up double boiler style (over hot water in another pot) It will curdle or the eggs will cook if it gets too hot. Only saying this because I tried to microwave it and cooked it.

Here is the cookbook I used for this recipe. The book is filled with delicious recipes and I can't wait to try more.
