If you’ve ever tried to make hollandaise sauce using the classic method of whisking the ingredients constantly over a double boiler, you know how tedious it can be. Well, you have got to try my blender version of hollandaise sauce. It’s fool-proof (aka Scott-proof) and only takes about 1 minute. After you have made the basic sauce, try playing with the recipe by adding herbs, shallots, cheese, etc.
