Hollandaise Sauce: the video

This video supplements the previous post .

Hollandaise Sauce:

3 egg yolks
1/2 cup butter
1 TBsp lemon/Lime juice
pinch salt

Other ingredients:

english muffins (slightly toasted)
black forest ham (or shrimp, crab or salmon)


  1. Okay, that does it. I'll be over shortly.....

    Nice video. I'm afraid that I didn't wander over to your YouTube to look for it. Where's the narration?


  2. Yum! No more breakfast at a restaurant, let's go to Chez Bob!

  3. Bob, I'm always hungry after I read your posts and it's always late at night. If I get fat(er) I'm blaming you.

  4. RichardM:

    I thought you would get tired of hearing my voice, so I just put the words on the screen instead. I have other videos on Youtube which I haven't linked so you are missing out on some stuff, and they have narration. I wanted to see if I get viewership just using tags.


    I am more of a baker than a cook. It's just that we got a new GAS stove and I had to learn how to use it. I love (my) Stove.


    Howdy, Food and Riding: is there anything else ? Nice farkled Strom you lucked into.

    Ms M:

    I love eggs benedicts and order them everywhere I go. Most of the time they are too dilute, not enough lemon juice, not enough sauce, if I make them myself I only have myself to blame

  5. Bob, you constantly amaze me. It's like there's some kind of weird transcontinental transposition going on. I make eggs Benedict too, and basically the same way. Now that sounds dumb, because eggs Benedict are eggs Benedict, right? But, there are any number of different ways to make hollandaise. Some of those ways are cheating, like using a blender or food processor, and some are really warmed mayonnaise, and not hollandaise. Also, most people use egg poachers. You poach in simmering water, which is what I do. You're a purist. How cool.

    The other weird bits, are: you have a red sports car that you now rarely drive, and so do I. You commute on two wheels, and so do I.

    And then there's this whole eggs Benedict thing.

    I'm speechless.

  6. Bob,

    That looks delish! I am starving & could snarf down an eggs benny now. Going to try to make some this weekend, thanks for the recipe demo!

    Years ago when I started baking I decided to only use the best ingredients, no short cuts & cut down on sugar and salt. Glad to see I am not alone in my thinking. All of the kitchen appliances are mine, Kitchen aid mixer, Cuisinart, blenders, I bought them all right down to the s/s bowls. Too bad you live so far away, we could exchange cookies


    remember Heat is your enemy, and keep stirring those egg yolks until they thicken. HMmmm, I love eggs benedicts, too
