Hollandaise Sauce

Ingredients

  • 3 pasture-raised egg yolks
  • 1 cup melted ghee or clarified butter
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • sea salt to taste
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

Method

Step 1

 

Separate the egg yolks from the whites and place the yolks in a large bowl and save the whites to make a frittata.

Step 2

 

Melt the ghee and keep it warm, but not hot. If the ghee is too hot, it will break the emulsion.

Step 3

 

Slowly add the warm, melted ghee into the egg yolks in a very slow stream while whisking vigorously.

Step 4

 

Continue to add the ghee until you have an emulsified sauce. If the hollandaise ends up too thick, add a small splash of cold water to thin it out.

Step 5

 

Whisk in the lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper to taste.

Step 6

 

Serve hollandaise sauce over poached eggs, poultry, grilled greens or flaky white fish. Garnish with chopped fresh dill. Hollandaise is best served immediately.

Note: If you do break the sauce, don’t worry. Set aside the broken sauce and start again by whisking 1-2 extra yolks then slowly whisk in the broken sauce.
