Hollandaise Sauce
Recipe from The Food Channel

This classic French sauce is technically defined as an emulsion of egg yolk and butter seasoned with lemon juice, salt and pepper. We define it as a rich velvety-smooth buttery-indulgent sauce that tastes simply delicious paired with artichokes, asparagus, seafood and Eggs Benedict.
