Microwave recipe for Hollandaise sauce. So easy you’ll be having eggs benedict every Sunday!


  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 3 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1 1/2 tbsps Fresh Lemon Juice (to taste)
  • 1 Pinch of Cayenne Pepper (to taste)


1. Put butter in a safe 4-cup measure. Microwave 20 sec. on high, until butter is soft but not melted. (This may take up to 60 seconds if the butter is cold from the fridge.)

2. In a small bowl, mix yolks and lemon juice.

3. Add mixture to softened butter. Let set for 1 minute.

4. Microwave on high, stopping to whisk every 15 sec.

5. The mixture WILL be lumpy for the first two whippings. Sauce is done when smooth and thick. Do not over work.
