This quick hollandaise sauce cooks to perfection in the microwave oven in just minutes and has a subtle extra kick from its dash of Dijon mustard, perfect for vegetables and egg dishes.



  1. Divide the butter into four chunks. Place it in a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl and cover with a paper towel.
  2. Microwave for 45-60 seconds on high until it is soft. Remove from the oven and stir to complete the melting process.
  3. Remove butter from the microwave and stir until completely melted.
  4. Separate eggs. Whisk the yolks, add the butter and stir well.
  5. Add cream and lemon juice and stir thoroughly.
  6. Place the mixture uncovered in the microwave and cook on high, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes. Stop the oven and stir it every 20 seconds so that it doesn’t overcook. It’s done when the mixture is slightly thick.
  7. Remove sauce from microwave. Add the mustard, stir and serve.
