Have you ever tried to make Poached Egg in the Microwave?



Melt the butter in a microwave (make sure it’s covered as it will splatter) for about 1 minute, until it’s hot. Alternatively, you could heat it on the stove.
Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, dijon, salt, and cayenne pepper into a high-powered blender and blend for 5 seconds until combined.
Add the melted butter and blend until the mixture emulsifies.
Pour the hollandaise sauce into a small bowl and serve while warm.



I substituted the Djon with Honey Mustard Mayo substituted the cayenne with 1/8 tsp of sweet paprika.
I used a Nutri bullet to blend it.


How to test the freshness of eggs


Are Your Eggs Fresh? Here’s How to Test Eggs for Freshness

  1. Place the egg in a bowl of water.
  2. If the egg lays on its side at the bottom, it is still quite fresh.
  3. Should it stand upright on the bottom, it is still fine to eat but should be eaten very soon, or hard-boiled.
  4. Lastly, if the egg floats to the top, it’s past its prime, and not good for eating.
