Do it Yourself: Eggs Benedict and Blender Hollandaise Recipe

By now the stresses of the school year have given way to beautiful days with the pool beckoning as relief from the sweltering sun. So, we felt now was the perfect time to offer up a tasty activity for your summer that you can easily throw together before a day in the sun.

Below, you will find recipes for Eggs Benedict and Blender Hollandaise Sauce. Both of which were put on display at our Progressive Lunch Experience during Alumni Weekend, where guests were given a brief demonstration on how to prepare this simple — and oh so tasty — brunch staple. But now it’s your turn!

So, pull out the apron and hit the kitchen! After you’re done, share a photo with us on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Serves 4

Large Egg Yolk 1 yolk
Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice 1 1/2 tsp
Cayenne Pepper pinch
Unsalted Butter 4 tbsp (1/2 stick)
Kosher Salt 1/2 tsp


  1. Put the egg yolk, lemon juice and cayenne in a blender.
  2. Pulse a couple times to combine.
  3. Put the butter in a small microwave safe bowl and melt in a microwave until just melted.
  4. With the blender running, gradually add the melted butter into the egg to make a smooth frothy sauce. If the sauce is very thick, blend in a teaspoon of lukewarm water to loosen it up.
  5. Season with the salt and serve immediately or keep warm in a small heat-proof bowl set over hot (but not simmering) water until ready to serve.
