This recipe is the easiest recipe EVER.
I confess that prior to this I always used a packet of powder to make my hollandaise sauce for things like eggs benedict or to serve with steamed salmon or asparagus. This is simple and easy - trust me, you'll never use another method. This recipe makes enough for 2 servings of eggs benedict or asparagus. I've tried several ways to make hollandaise sauce; this method works every time and is very quick.
Microwave Hollandaise Sauce
2 egg yolks
1/4 lemon juiced, or to taste
pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 cup butter, melted
Beat egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper together in a microwave-safe bowl until smooth. Slowly stream melted butter into the egg yolk mixture while whisking to incorporate.
Heat in microwave for 15 to 20 seconds; whisk.
