Habit Forming Hollandaise Sauce

There are many recipes for Hollandaise Sauce.
This is BY FAR the easiest and best.
The secret is….the Blender. Yep.
All you do is melt a stick of butter and set aside.
In a blender put in two egg yolks and the juice of a lemon.
Turn on the blender and slowly pour in the melted butter.
Do this slowly.
Once all the butter is in the blender the Hollandaise is done.

How cute are these! Just make deviled eggs (hard boiled yolks, mayo, chopped onion, chopped celery, relish, dash of mustard and some seasonings). Cut the hard boiled egg white into two pieces with the bottom being a little bit larger. Fill with deviled egg mixture and put the smaller egg white on top. Use two peppercorns(or olive pieces) for eyes and a carrot stick piece for the beak. Too peeping adorable!
