ASPARAGUS WITH HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
Bundle of fresh asparagus
3 egg yolks
1/2 lemon, juiced or 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tsp cold water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup butter
1. Cut ends off asparagus and boil for 10 minutes, then lay on plate.
2. In a small bowl whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, cold water, salt and pepper. Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Once melted turn heat off and slowly add yolk mixture into butter. Serve over asparagus.
* If sauce is not thick enough you may need to turn the burner back on, very low and cook while stirring until you've reached your desired thickness
