Recipe For Champagne Hollandaise

Making a hollandaise sauce can be quite daunting but if you follow these very simple steps, you can make this champagne hollandaise sauce for a special occasion.

  1. boil the kettle and place some of the boiling water into a milk / gravy jug
  2. place some of the boiling water into a small sauce pan and put that on the stove on a low heat
  3. place 15mls of the champagne into a bowl and place the bowl over the sauce pan
  4. get everything else ready – if you are making poached eggs to go with the champagne hollandaise sauce then get your water ready – it should be at a rolling boil
  5. be prepared to whisk and whisk and whisk!
  6. leave the heat on medium when you start the hollandaise 

I use Dave to help me when I am making this for breakfast, but if you are going to be making the hollandaise sauce alone then get the hollandaise done before you poach your eggs. You cannot place it back on the heat which is what the jug is for. As soon as it is the right consistency, tip the water out of the jug, give it a quick dry and place the champagne hollandaise sauce into the jug. It will still be perfect in the time it takes to toast your muffins and get the eggs poached.
