i’ve been meaning to post the meals i made when my lovely in-laws were here, and have been running around like a crazy person, neglecting my favorite thing ~ blogging! who knows why i like to do this, but it just feels so good to share great culinary experiences. it’s like i’m reliving and re-tasting the food all over again!
so, i made an eggbake, with eggs, milk, cheeses, chives and bacon. i added some veggies too, but i can’t remember what i added. they were most likely leftovers. that’s usually how i roll.
but the hollandaise sauce is the piece de resistance! in my humble opinion. i didn’t INVENT hollandaise sauce, nor did i invent this recipe, so it’s not like i’m bragging. although, i did have the wisdom to steal this recipe and slather it all over my eggbakes. yesssss.
here’s the recipe:
HOLLANDAISE SAUCE (created by michael chiarello from the food network)
- heat up 1 stick of butter, and 1/2 cup of olive oil on low. (the olive oil reduces the amount of heart-stopping butter you would normally use.)
- meanwhile, in a blender, drop in 2 egg yolks, the juice of one or two lemons (i like it really lemony, so i add 2), 1 tablespoon of cream, and some kosher salt and cracked black pepper. if you have a more fragrant salt, like french sea salt or grey salt, that really makes this sauce pop. but use whatever you have.
- blend, and slowly stream in the hot butter/oil mixture. slowly! easy does it!
- top sauce with dill and chives.
those potatoes almost steal the show. those are baked home fries ~ i think i already posted those earlier…
you’ve gotta try this hollandaise sauce. it dresses up any breakfast and is so easy. enjoy!
