Perfect every time!
"This recipe worked flawlessly, with one important note. It was *far* too salty. The next time I make it, I'm going to try 1/4 tsp, not 1 tsp. Aside from that, the flavor and consistency were absolutely perfect!"
Melt the butter in a dish in the microwave. Separate the eggs into yolk and whites. Discard the whites.
In a blender, put the yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper and let sit until room temperature. Turn on the blender for 1 min. Very slowly, add a tablespoon of the bowling butter from the microwave. Blend again for another minute. Then add another tablespoon of bowling butter. Do this about 3-4 times, then you can start increasing the butter more and more. Watch the sauce and verify that it's thickening.
If it refuses to thicken, then the butter was added too fast or it wasn't boiling butter, so restart (sorry!).
Serve over english muffins layered with ham and poached or boiled/sliced eggs. Use all the sauce, as if you microwave it, you'll get scrambled eggs.

CaptainHalitosis 4y agoThis recipe contains too much cayenne!
AntarcticCat 5y agoThis was excellent. I love the slight kick of cayenne. 1/8th of salt was perfect.
Jimcook 5y agoVery easy and good.
Xinalinh 6y agoI wish we would've read the comments before making this-- yes yes yes waaaaay too much salt. I'll do 1/4 tsp next time.
Jefbates 6y agoWorked excellently. I took another rater's advice and reduced the salt. I will probably do the same for the lemon juice and cayenne.
