How to make Hollandaise sauce in just 3 steps

  • Place egg yolks, water, lemon juice and seasoning in a large bowl. Put bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water and whisk until eggs have doubled in volume, being careful eggs do not get too hot and begin to curdle.

  • Whisking continuously, add warm melted butter in a thin and steady stream until sauce has thickened and increased in volume again.

  • Check seasoning and serve sauce immediately, or cover closely and keep in a warm place for up to four hours before serving.
