Hollandaise Sauce


325 g butter, cubed (results in approx. 500 ml of clarified butter)
3 egg yolks, 1 whole egg
25 g diced shallots or onions
50 ml dry white wine, lemon juice or somewhat mild vinegar
0.5 – 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 bay leaf
3 crushed black peppercorns
salt, white or cayenne pepper and a pinch of sugar


Melt the butter. Sautee the shallots in vegetable oil until translucent. Add the peppercorns, bay leaf and lemon/vinegar, quench with white wine and reduce for about 3 minutes. Strain the reduction through a fine sieve. Whisk the egg yolk and whole egg with 4 tbsp. of the reduction over the water bath (approx. 70 °C). Add the butter (approx. 50 °C) in drops, and then gradually stir in. Season to taste. Pour the sauce into the 1 pint Whipper, screw on 1 cream charger and shake vigorously. Serve immediately over Eggs Benedict.
