"This was a simple, straight-forward recipe for a great hollandaise sauce. I found it a bit lemony and lacking in other flavors so I recommend doing 1 tblsp and 1 tsp lemon juice and adding to your taste. I also added a bit more salt and pepper and a bit of cayenne per other recipes and it was fantastic. A great hollandaise and my new go-to for my favorite eggs Benedict!!"- Nurseboo
Top-ranked recipe named "Microwave Hollandaise Sauce"
1. Combine egg yolk, lemon juice, salt and white pepper in a small microwave safe bowl and blend thoroughly.
2. Melt butter in the microwave on High (100%) for 30 to 45 seconds. Add the melted butter in a steady stream to egg yolk mixture, stirring constatnly. When butter has all been added, microwave on High (100%) about 1 more minute, stopping and stirring every 15 seconds. Stop microwaving when sauce becomes thick and smooth, which may be before 1 minute total time.
HINT: If sauce curdles and breaks, you can recover it by heating 1 ounce of milk to boiling and adding it slowly to the Hollandaise while beating vigorously.
Mrsswill 1 year agoWish I had read the reviews before making this. Didn't make it to the second microwaving, it curdled right away. What a waste! Luckily, I found another recipe that had me prepare it on the stove and it worked perfectly. This recipe seems to work for others, guess it was just me.
elenafeldbaum 1 year agoI agree with other reviewers on less lemon juice and shorter microwaving intervals. Otherwise, I love that it's fast, easy and delicious!
robertjboever 2 years agoI suggest using less lemon juice and adding a dash of dry mustard. Also when microwaving, only 10 seconds the first time and 6-7 seconds each time after.

stratman58 3 years agoExcellent recipe, tastes great, puts many restaurant hollandaise sauces to shame. Just be careful not to curdle it - in my microwave, after one blast at 10 seconds, I switch to 6-7 second zaps, stirring thoroughly after each one.
Usaborn 3 years agoThis very close to what I made this morning, but you can add a pinch of dry mustard. I love this sauce.
