When ordered in your favorite restaurant, eggs Florentine tastes like heaven. But when the restaurant is closed and your only option is to start your Sunday morning in another restaurant or cook your own breakfast at home, what do you do?
The answer is easy: stay home and cook. If you have some Hollandaise sauce mix in your pantry, then you’re all good. After all, eating in another restaurant can be a gamble.
Making Your Own Hollandaise Sauce from Scratch
With premade sauce mixes readily available, it is fast and easy to prepare Hollandaise sauce. However, when preparing the sauce from scratch, things can get a bit tricky. You need to blend the egg yolks, butter, cream, and lemon juice carefully over a double boiler and then wait until a smooth and thick consistency is reached.
If you allow the sauce to boil over, then everything is wasted as the sauce will curdle in an instant.
Making Your Sauce Using Hollandaise Sauce Mix
When using a premade mix, all you need to do is pour the sauce mix into a small saucepan, add a cup of milk and 4 Tbsp. of butter. Allow it to simmer for around 2 minutes or until it thickens. Whisk or stir as the mixture cooks. The result will be creamy in a pleasant kind of way. It will not be too salty and will have a real butter flavor.
Using premade sauce mixes are a convenient way to prepare your favorite dishes. While doing it on your own and right in your kitchen may not approximate what comes out of a professional chef’s kitchen, still, the result is something to be proud of. So gather all the ingredients and prepare your scrumptious work of art.
