Classic Hollandaise

This creamy, classic hollandaise sauce recipe is the perfect complement for seafood, green veggies, and of course, eggs Benedict.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice, plus more (optional)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Preparation

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove pan from heat; keep warm. Whisk egg yolks, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 Tbsp. hot water in a medium metal bowl. Place bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water (do not allow bottom of bowl to touch the water). Drizzle in the melted butter 2 Tbsp. at a time, whisking constantly, until all of the butter is fully incorporated and the sauce is thick. Season to taste with cayenne, salt, and pepper; add more lemon juice, if desired. Serve immediately.
