Hollandaise Sauce - 3 Cups

This sauce can be used in many dishes, including eggs benedict and steamed vegetables.
Approximate preparation time: 15 minutes


¾ pound (3 sticks) unsalted butter
3 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Put the butter into a saucepan over low heat to melt.
Insert the large chopping blade into the medium work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Add the yolks, mustard, salt and pepper and process for 90 seconds. Once the butter is melted, turn heat up to bring the butter just to a boil. With the machine running, very slowly drizzle ¼ of the hot butter through the feed tube drop by drop, being sure each drop is incorporated with the yolks before adding the next. This step should take about 5 minutes. Once the mixture is emulsified and homogenous, slowly add remaining butter until incorporated, about 1 minute. Sauce will thicken to a mayonnaise consistency. When all butter has been incorporated, add the lemon juice and pulse to incorporate. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Serve while still warm.
