Now, you don't have to cook bacon or ham, you don't even have to have a english muffin. Here I present a few different ways to eat it. Instead of the corn tortilla, use wilted spinach it is just as good.
Ham or Bacon (or even Peppered Spam)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Corn Tortilla (Gluten Free)
Optional: Fresh Basil, 1-2 leafs, Cayenne Pepper, wilted spinach
1 Egg Yolk
1 TBSP Butter
1 TBSP Hot Water
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Small sauce pan, small glass or metal bowl that will fit in sauce pan but not all the way. It just needs to touch the simmering water in the sauce pan (see picture)
Hollandaise sauce comes together very quickly once you start to cook it. First, get the water simmering but not boiling for the sauce and set your bowl in it so that it gets hot. Make sure all ingredients are ready and handy.
Then get the pan ready for your fried or poached egg. I have made it with an easy over egg, fried egg and a poached egg. One thing that I do, I whip the egg white with some fresh basil and cook it at the same time as my other egg so that it doesn't go to waste.
Put the butter in the bowl over the simmering water and let it melt.
Once it is melted start your other egg (poached, fried etc.)
Put the tablespoon hot water in with the butter (I just scoop out a tablespoon from the simmering water)
This is where it comes together very quickly!
Put in the lemon juice and whisk briefly
Your egg yolk should be ready in a small bowl
Add about a tablespoon of the butter mixture to the yolk and whisk
Do this again
Now add this to the butter mixture and whisk, don't stop.
It should only take about 15 seconds for it to thicken
Remove from heat.
Plate and serve.
Thank you for stopping by and remember, enjoy life.
