Smith’s Food and Drug ‘Sunday Brunch’ easy blender hollandaise sauce

Fox 13's Tamara Vaifanua joins Smith's Chef Jeff Jackson to master a tasty and easy blender hollandaise sauce for this week's "Sunday Brunch" segments.

Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Ingredients
3 large egg yolks
1 – 2 tbsp. lemon juice (depending on taste)
½ tsp salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
10 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Directions
Melt butter in a saucepan or in the microwave.
Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and cayenne pepper to a blender and blend 30-45 seconds to mix and add a little air to the eggs.
While the blender is running on low speed, begin to slowly drizzle in the butter.  Once the butter is all in, continue to blend a few more seconds.   Taste the sauce and add more salt, lemon juice or cayenne pepper if needed.  If the sauce seems too thick, you can blend in a little water until it reaches the desired consistency.
Use the sauce immediately or keep in a warm spot to prevent separating.
