Tip

Curdling of the hollandaise sauce may occur due to overbeating or adding butter too quickly. To rescue a curdled sauce, try one of the following: Beat another egg yolk into a small bowl; with a whisk or fork, gradually beat in the curdled hollandaise sauce. Alternatively, place 1 tbsp (15 mL) water in a small bowl; with a whisk or fork, beat in a small amount of separated sauce until it becomes smooth, and keep adding sauce slowly, while continuing to beat vigorously.

Hollandaise sauce may be frozen. To use, thaw in refrigerator. Warm in double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, stirring constantly. If sauce should separate, use procedure described above.
