I made some hollandaise sauce going by a recipe I found on the internet and it was too runny. So I added some corn starch to thicken it up and it did thicken up but maybe it changed the taste somewhat. I don't know because I have never made hollandaise sauce before and don't know what it is supposed to taste like. Anyway, maybe you have a tasty recipe that you want to share.

I got this from a Chef at Trump Towers about 30 years ago. I could drink this stuff by the gallon!

Hollandaise Sauce

2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup cold butter cut into 8 pieces (no substitutions)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon paprika
pinch ground red pepper

Whisk egg yolks, water and lemon juice in small sauce pan. Cook over low heat, whisking constantly, until bubbles form around edge of pan. Whisk butter in one piece at a time until completely incorporated. Remove from heat and stir in salt, paprika and ground red pepper.

I do mine in a blender:

I also add a dash of hot sauce to liven it up.

I just use Knorrs packaged Hollandaise sauce, yes, homemade is probably better but this stuff is great and a breeze to whip up.

I like homemade hollandaise better ONLY because I prefer fresh lemon taste. Also if anyone likes dijonnaise sauce for chicken. It's hollandaise sauce with a tablespoon or two of stone ground dijon mustard. Simple sauce but very tasty.

But I adore Knorr's Bearnaise sauce packet. Knorr makes pretty decent sauces.

If the sauce is thin, you probably added the butter too quickly. I would have thickened it with a egg yolk.

You may want to try the microwave trick. It does work

Here is a recipe:

1 jumbo egg or 2 egg yolks
2 capfuls lemon juice
dash of salt
dash of white pepper
1 stick of dairy butter, melted and HOT

Whisk the egg, lemon juice & seasonings together until frothy. While continuing to whisk, pour in a thin stream of the hot butter & continue pouring until all butter is incorporated into the egg mixture. If it hasn't thickened a little, give it a nudge in the microwave by 10-second zaps and stir well after each zap until it begins to thicken. As soon as it BEGINS to thicken, that's enough - it's done. Serve hot.

I bought some Reese Hollandaise sauce and it was absolutely horrible. The label didn't give any instructions on adding anything or whether or not to mix it with something or anything. So I am going to throw it out. I could hardly get the eggs down but forced myself. So now I bought some Knorr and will try that.
