  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted and melted
  • 4 egg yolks
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • pinch of salt


  • Heat a saucepan with water to a gentle simmer.
  • Add the egg yolks and lemon juice to a heat-safe mixing bowl. ¬†Whisk using a hand mixer (or whisk by hand) until the mixture has doubled in volume.
  • Place over the boiling water  to make a double boiler and cook while whisking, for about 1 minute.  Then, very slowly stream in the melted butter while whisking.  
  • As soon as the sauce comes together, it's ready! It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and stay separated.  Serve over my Eggs Benedict, asparagus or broccoli.


If the sauce gets too thick, add in a tiny bit of hot water and whisk.  This should loosen up the sauce perfectly.
For a stronger lemon flavor, add some lemon zest to the sauce.
