Master this classic French sauce by using your blender.

Makes: 10 servings

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 5 mins

  • 2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Set out a medium stainless steel bowl. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Using a blender, mix the egg yolks and lemon juice on high speed for 20 seconds. With the machine on, gradually pour in the boiling water, then the warm butter. Add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper, blending on high speed for 1 minute.
  3. Pour the egg-butter mixture into the reserved bowl and set over the simmering saucepan of water. Whisk the mixture constantly until steaming-hot and thick enough to coat a spoon, about 5 minutes.
