Perfect hollandaise sauce has never been so easy to make. This could be very bad news for my waistline.

Is there anything better than spooning rich, thick, creamy hollandaise sauce over perfectly poached eggs Benedict? I think not.

OK, maybe spooning it directly into your mouth would be better, but definitely not as socially acceptable at the brunch table.

The thing about hollandaise sauce, though, is that as wonderful as it is, it can be a pain to make. It's finicky. It breaks. It turns goopy and chunky and is the exact opposite of that smooth liquid gold pictured above.

But with the help of your blender, you're making perfect hollandaise every single time, and your brunch just got a whole lot easier. So grab another mimosa... I'm pretty sure you can handle this sauce while you're sipping the bubbly.

 

To round out your super-easy brunch, whip up a few of these recipes that won't keep you in the kitchen all morning. (Grab your muffin tins... you're going to need them.)

I had to give you an eggs Benedict recipe to use your sauce, but disclaimer, this crabcake Benedict probably can't be classified as super easy. Swap in your quick blender hollandaise sauce for a shortcut to save a little time, though.
