"My fondness for particular ingredients seems to run in spurts. Right now I'm a woman on a mission to find & binge on AVOCADO recipes. To make a long story shorter, this recipe was inspired by another recipe I could live without so I modified the avocado Hollandaise part of the recipe to better suit our personal tastes & got what I was after. All that said, I'm ready to use it in my creative ways & hope you'll help by making it & sharing your thoughts w/me. ENJOY!"

Step 1

Melt the butter & set aside to cool slightly.

Step 2

Halve the avocado, remove the seed & spoon the avocado pulp into a food proc, blender or wide-mouth jar (See Note). Add the lemon juice plus hot water & blend until smooth. Continue to blend as you add the olive oil & butter.

Step 3

Taste for flavor & textural consistency. May add 1 extra tbsp of water as needed. Then add salt, pepper & Tabasco to taste. Stir lemon zest into mixture & use immediately or store in the refrigerator for later use.

NOTE: I have a wide-mouth jar w/a lid that I use often for recipes like this & then I reach for my trusty hand-held blender so I can get the job done easily & use the jar for storage

Tips & Variations

  • Food processor, blender or hand-held blender (my choice)

Daily Inspiration

What a nice change from regular hollandaise sauce. I served it over my not-so-poached eggs and English muffins this morning. The sauce is definitely great with an over-easy egg and it adds lots of lemony avocado goodness to the dish.
