Here's my hollandaise- got it off a TV show about 25 years ago - I think I've posted it earlier...
3 Large egg yolks
1 stick butter (salted or unsalted) - cold, cut up into 8 -10 pieces.
Juice of one lemon ( to taste)
( a little ground white pepper)
In a tall plastic cup (microwave safe), place all the ingredients.
Zap on high power for 10 seconds.
Stir vigorously with a chopstick or something similar.
Keep zapping in 10 second bursts and stirring until thickened - about 40 seconds. Zap, stir,zap,stir,zap,stir.
It is important that you use a container that does not hold a lot of heat - glass or ceramic will keep it cooking too long and ruin the sauce.
