What is hollandaise sauce?
- Hollandaise sauce, formerly “Dutch sauce” is a creamy sauce made of emulsified melted butter, egg yolks, lemon juice, and seasoning. It’s one of the five mother sauces of French cuisine and is served especially with fish.
My family loves the indulgence of this rich and decadent sauce, and you can too with it being so easy to make! Pull out that blender and give it a whirl. The only caveat is that it needs to be eaten within 30 minutes, but we never seem to have an issue with that!
