Making a hollandaise sauce can be tricky, but this easy HOLLANDAISE SAUCE HACK turns out perfect every time.

We had a big chat about the beauty of classic sauces and the way they can elevate both the flavour and presentation of a favourite meal. As far as sauces go, five are often referred to as the mother sauces: Béchamel, velouté, Espagnole, tomato and Hollandaise.

We previously post THIS 1-minute video on how to make HOLLANDAISE SAUCE from scratch. Although we love hollandaise made in this traditional or old-fashioned way, results can sometimes vary. If the egg yolks cook too quick, you can end up with something more like scrambled eggs than a creamy hollandaise. If you add the butter too soon, the sauce breaks. It certainly takes a few tries and a lot of practice until you get it right.

Thankfully this recipe works like a charm, and our quick HOLLANDAISE SAUCE HACK produces a similar flavour with less work and time.

Here’s how to make this easy HOLLANDAISE SAUCE HACK!

Ingredients for Hollandaise Sauce Hack


Six readily available ingredients are all you need. One thing worth mentioning is that we crafted this recipe to yield about 3/4 of a cup of hollandaise. If you need your sauce to serve a number of guests, you can double the recipe and expect the same results.

Ready to blend up our quick hollandaise


We made the sauce in our video using an immersion blender. I’ve listed our favourite in the Amazon links below if you’d like to purchase. I particularly like this one because it comes with a canister that helps to blend up everything from smoothies and shakes to salad dressings and sauces like this one. Don’t worry if you don’t have one though, you can also make this sauce using a conventional blender or even a hand mixer if you’re in a pinch.

Serving our hollandaise sauce


You’ll probably be like us once you make your first batch, wheels turning, thinking about all the uses. Hollandaise is a wonderful option served next to grilled asparagus, steamed broccoli or cauliflower and braised fennel. Try it with poached eggs or on Eggs Benedict, CORNED BEEF HASH or a delicious MAKE-AHEAD BREAKFAST BAKE. It’s also delicious with grilled or baked fish. I’m sure you’ll find lots of occasions to serve it.

Well, that’s one way to make a favourite sauce in record time!
