Nina says: “One minute hollandaise……. what? What happened to whisking forever to incorporate the melted butter. What happened to a split sauce?
One minute hollandaise made with my stick blender, that is what happened! Like so many people I LOVE hollandaise sauce. Sadly I have had so many failed attempts that I have decided to have my fix for hollandaise at restaurants where there are qualified people who can make it. The I saw the recipe for a 1 minute hollandaise made with your stick blender and thought……. that the heck, let me give it a go!
I can now have hollandaise sauce on fish, chicken and my all time favorite poached eggs. There are few meals that compare to poached eggs on sourdough bread with fresh rocket and of course hollandaise.”
One Minute Hollandaise with a stick blender
makes 200 ml sauce
1 extra large egg yolk
5 ml white wine vinegar
5 ml water
5 ml Dijon Mustard
125 ml melted butter – melted it must be 125ml, it is about 120 g
Place the egg yolk, water, vinegar and mustard in your stick blender’s jug. Melt the butter in microwave oven. Place your stick blender over the egg yolk and start running the machine. Slowly add the melted butter and voila…. in seconds you have hollandaise. You can season with salt, pepper and maybe tarragon, but to me, it is just perfect.
