Easy Hollandaise Sauce Recipe

The photo is a poached egg over a crab cake with hollandaise sauce and roast asparagus; recipes below.


4 egg yolks, beaten
6 TBS fresh lemon juice
2 sticks (1/2 lb) butter

Mix egg yolks and lemon juice in a pan and add 1 stick of the butter. Stir over low heat until butter is melted. Add the other stick of butter and stir until melted and thick.

In reheating, if there is any separation, add a little more lemon juice.

This is a lighter version of hollandaise sauce.

2 slightly beaten eggs
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup half-and-half
2 TBS butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cook mixture in a double boiler over simmering water until thickened. Do not cook this too fast or it will curdle. Add butter, 1/2 tsp salt (if using salted butter, do not use) and nutmeg. May be reheated carefully.

See photo above.  Each muffin half serves one. 


2 English muffins, toasted and buttered
4 crab cakes (to cover 4 halves), recipe below
4 eggs, poached or scrambled
1 cup hollandaise sauce, recipe above
roast asparagus (side dish), recipe below

Place each toasted/buttered muffin half on a plate (4 plates).  Top with crab cake, then egg and top with hollandaise sauce.  Serve with roasted asparagus.  This is so good.


1 can (6 oz) Bumble Bee fancy white crab meat
1 can (6 oz) Bumble Bee fancy lump crab meat

1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup cornbread crumbs, bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup
1/2 tsp
pinch dried dill
1/2 tsp
Cajun seasoning
1/4 tsp
Old Bay seasoning
hot sauce
olive oil for frying

Lightly mix all ingredients together and form into patties and place on a plate. Put the patties in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill.  If they are not in patties the meat will warm up when you form them.  This will also help them not fall apart when turning over.

Heat some olive oil on the bottom of a cast iron pan or heavy skillet.  Make certain they are golden brown before carefully flipping (use your other hand to hold cake).  Continue to cook until the other side is golden brown.  Serve with lemon wedges. 


1 lb of fresh asparagus
2 TBS olive oil (use as much as needed to completely cover vegetables)
1/2 tsp kosher salt

PREHEAT oven to 425 degrees and wrap foil around a cookie sheet.

Cut off the woody bottom of the asparagus stalks and discard. Peel approximately 2-3" off the bottom of the stalk so it doesn't become stringy.

Put the olive oil in a resealable bag and add the asparagus. Shake until all the pieces are equally coated and put on the foil lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt and roast for 15-25 minutes depending how tender you want it.
