How to make Hollandaise Sauce

A rich and creamy Hollandaise Sauce is a key component for Eggs Benedicts. It also makes for a lovely accompanying sauce to drip over vegetables like asparagus or broccoli, fish and chicken.

 In a hollandaise, careful heating and constant whisking bring the butter and yolks together to create a smooth and very creamy sauce that is delicate in flavor.

For this Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce recipe, I have turned to Julia Child's Hollandaise Sauce recipe and adapted it to my own taste.
