Hollandaise Sauce


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 c butter

Cooking Steps:

  1. Stir the egg yolks and lemon juice vigorously in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of the butter and stir over very low heat, stirring constantly until butter is melted.
  3. Add remaining butter. Continue stirring vigorously until butter is melted and sauce is thickened. (Be sure the butter melts slowly, as this gives the eggs time to cook and thicken the sauce without curdling.)

“I was able to do this through prayer, stubbornness, and humor. It all really helped keep my attitude positive and my head in the right frame of mind,” explained Gary. “Look, cancer sucks. It’s scary, but it can be beaten. Ninety percent of what it takes to beat it is in one’s mind.”Gary Lazarz
