Low Carb Hollandaise sauce

Last year for our anniversary my husband and i went to to dinner at a nice steak restaurant in Boca Raton called New York Prime. We had the most amazing steaks topped with the best hollandaise suace I ahve ever had. As I was checking my fitness pal, I realized that most hollandaise sauces are Keto because all the ingredients are low carb.

After discovering the low carb nature of this amazing sauce, I started using it on everything! You can easily make hollandaise in beginning of the week and plan your meal plans around it for the whole week. Here are a few ideal on how to use hollandaise sauce. 

  • You can use hollandaise sauce to top vegetables like Broccoli, artichokes, and asparagus. Here is a fantastic grilled artichoke recipe that would go great with this sauce. 
  • You can also use it to top your cauliflower and Brussel sprouts
  • Hollandaise also pairs extremely well with meats like steak, chicken and fish. It is traditionally served with Salmon. 
  • You can even use it at breakfast to top your eggs and omelette. Traditionally, hollandaise is served over Eggs Benedict made with poached eggs. We served it here over a low carb Irish Eggs Benedict with low carb corned beef hash. 

Is Hollandaise Sauce keto friendly? 

Yes, Hollandaise Sauce by nature of its ingredients is Keto friendly. On the Keto diet, you usually try to avoid packaged items and preservatives. That it is best to make it from scratch at home. But, if you are at a restaurant, this is a good way to spice up an omelette or pouched eggs without adding a ton carbs or sugar.

Keto Hollandaise Ingredients 

  • Egg Yolks
  • Fresh Lemons Juice – Choosing fresh juice makes a big difference in this recipe. If you don’t have fresh lemon juice on hand, the squirt bottle kind will be fine.

  • Seasonings : Cayenne Pepper and Salt 

Tools & Supplies 

Double Boiler or Metal Mixing Bowl with a Pop that it can fit into without touching the bottom. 
Whisk 
Egg Yoke Separator 

How to Make Keto hollandaise Sauce? 

Juice the lemons until you get 2 tablespoons worth of lemon juice. Make sure to remove any bits or seeds from the lemon juice. 
Separate the yokes from the white of the eggs using the egg yoke separator or by hand. 
Then, in the metal mixing bowl whisk the yolks and lemon juice together until the mixture doubles in size. 
Get a pot and fill it with an inch of water. Set the stove to high heat and let the water boil. Turn the stove down to a medium heat. 
Melt 1 stick of butter all the way without burning. I used the microwave melt butter setting, but you can do it on the stove too. 
Have the butter ready next to the stove.
Add the metal bowl on top of the pot with boiling water.
Slowly add the melted butter into the egg yolks and lemon mixture whisking the entire time to prevent the eggs from scrambling. 
Remove from heat and whisk in the cayenne pepper and salt.
