Hollandaise Sauce

On eggs, on veggies…this sauce is awesome…a classic that fell out of favor because we were told that eggs and butter and were unhealthy!   Battery eggs, caged eggs are unhealthy..but organic, cage free eggs that get to forage for bugs and worms..these you should be eating every day.

Hollandaise Sauce

Set up a double boiler (or a glass or stainless steel bowl over hot water, just shy of simmering..

For one serving use 1 egg.

Whisk yolk in bowl over hot but not boiling water.  When egg gets hot but still runny, add 1-2 Tablespoons butter. Keep whisking.

When it starts to thicken, remove from heat and add a few squeezes of lemon juice.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Douse your breakfast or veggies or salmon with it.

If it gets too thick, whisk in a bit of hot water.
