Like poached eggs (which, coincidentally, are often served with Hollandaise!), Hollandaise sauce has a reputation for being difficult and fussy. It’s the kind of thing people have at restaurants but never make at home because they’re sure it won’t turn out right.

But when you make it in a blender, Hollandaise sauce is pretty much fail-proof!

Easy Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

So yes, this sauce recipe isn’t exactly traditional—but the traditional method requires a whole lot more effort, and it’s also more likely to curdle and not turn out right. I don’t know about you, but I’m not in the mood for that kind of stress when making eggs Benedict breakfast—at least not before I’ve had coffee!

Even without using the classic method, this blender sauce is creamy, silky, and rich. In other words, it’s everything you love about Hollandaise, without all the work. I’d say that’s a win!

How to Make Hollandaise Sauce in a Blender

  1. Start the Sauce: Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, and salt to a blender and blend until frothy.
  2. Add the Butter: With the blender running, slowly pour in the hot melted butter. Continue to blend until the sauce is thick and creamy.
  3. Serve: Pour the sauce into a small bowl. If you’re not using it immediately, place a piece of plastic wrap on the surface, which keeps the sauce from forming a skin over the top.
