Recipe

Tasso Hollandaise

  • Yield: 1 1/3 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup clarified butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) finely minced tasso or spiced ham
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • In a stainless bowl set over a pot of simmering water on medium heat, whisk the egg yolks with the lemon juice---taking the bowl off the pot from time to time to temper the heat and keep the yolks from scrambling, but whisking constantly---until a ribbon forms when you lift the whisk.
  • Vigorously whisk in the butter a few drops at a time, alternating with a few drops of the water, until all is thoroughly incorporated. Whisk in the tasso, garlic, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire, and salt. Serve immediately.
