easy microwave hollandaise sauce

lately I’ve been making a lot of hollandaise sauce for asparagus after my step dad bought 90 pounds of it for 3$ at PBR Auction. So I decided I’d share my recipe for all those asparagus lovers like me.

1/2 cup of soft butter (not melted)

1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice (or however much you want since I like mine quite lemon-y)

3 egg yolks

Put everything together in a microwave-safe bowl and give it a good stir. microwave your mixture for 15 seconds at a time stirring in between each microwave. It will seem quite lumpy at first but after about 3 or 4 times it will start to turn more into a thick sauce. if you like it runnier add more butter and/or lemon juice to your sauce.

My favourite way to have asparagus is to steam it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes so it is still crisp then put hollandaise sauce on it.

    That seems too easy… I have to try this now.

    How long will it take overall to do this? (15 seconds at a time)
