If you're a frequent brunch-goer, you've likely experienced the highs and lows of hollandaise. The highs come when the rich and creamy sauce is poured over your eggs Benedict, and you know you've reached the pinnacle of brunchdom. The lows come when you realize the classic dish is too intimidating to make at home. We're not going to lie. Hollandaise can be a tricky sauce to master.

But if you think you can't make your own hollandaise, think again. Instead of whisking the egg yolks until your arm falls off, try this far simpler method.
