Special Equipment

  • Blender


  • 3 egg yolks, I suggest using pasteurized eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch black pepper, or cayenne or white pepper
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, 1 stick, cut into small pieces


  • I suggest placing your blender as near to your stove as possible.
  • Place the egg yolks, salt, pepper, and 1 Tablespoon of the lemon juice in your blender.
  • Put the butter into a small saucepan and melt it over medium heat until foamy.
  • Cover the blender and turn on high speed for TWO SECONDS.
  • With the blender running remove the lid, or if you have separate space in the top for pouring, open that. And immediately start slowly drizzling in the hot butter. Stop pouring the butter in when you get to the white solids at the bottom of the pan. You may need to protect yourself with a towel if there's spattering.
  • Taste the sauce. Add the remaining lemon juice if you want to amp up the flavor or thin the sauce a bit. You can also add more pepper or salt at this time and any fresh herbs you may want to include.
  • Serve immediately or put it into your serving dish and set the dish in a bowl of tepid water to keep the sauce warm until ready to serve.
