Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

You may think “OMG she is making this sauce in the microwave? No way am I trying that”. But it’s good, and so much easier when having a big brunch or just making this for steak oscar, to make it in the microwave versus trying to stir it constantly on the stove.

Hollandaise Sauce Recipe


  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (or whipping)
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard


  1. Cut butter into 4 pieces and place in 1 quart glass bowl and microwave, covered with a paper towel, on high til almost melted. Remove butter from microwave and stir until completely melted.
  2. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in a small bowl and setting the whites aside for another use. Beat the yolks well with a whisk, then add to the butter and stir well.
  3. Add the cream and lemon juice to the egg mixture and stir well. Microwave uncovered 1-2 minutes, uncovered, until slightly thick, stopping every 20 seconds to stir…
  4. Remove and stir in the mustard.
  5. Voila 🙂
