Number of Servings: 12


    3 Egg Yolks
    1 to 2 Tbls. Lemon Juice
    Pinch of salt
    1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, melted
    White Pepper, to taste


1. Whisk the egg yolks and 1 tbls of lemon juice together in a small heavy saucepan, or top of a double boiler. Add a pinch of salt and whisk until sauce is thick and creamy.

2. Set the pan over VERY LOW heat, or over simmering water in the lower pan of the double boiler. Begin whisking immeadiately. Continue to whisk until the egg mixture just begins to thicken. The sign of this, is that the wires of the whisk will begin to leave "thacks" in which you can see the bottom of the pan.

3. Remove pan from the heat and begin to dribble in the melted butter, whisking constantly. Incorporate all the butter, but leave the milky residue behind.

4. Add white pepper to taste and a spoonful or two of additional lemon juice if you like.

The sauce will keep, covered in a warm (NOT HOT) place for at least 30 minutes.


Makes about 1.5 cups.

12, 1/8 cup serving size.

AMAZING on top of steamed asparagus!
