There is this restaurant that has the most amazing eggs benedict. After watching last nights ‘Beat Bobby Flay’ egg’s benedict episode, I needed to make this iconic dish into a healthy Paleo version! But first I had to start with the star of the dish.
This recipe is intended to make a smaller portion to avoid having leftovers, but if you have a large family or have more then two guests I highly suggest doubling this recipe.
Hollandaise sauce is typically made with butter, and if you can tolerate dairy, using butter is always my first choice. For this Paleo recipe, I use ghee. I have yet to try coconut oil, but feel free to try making your Hollandaise sauce with it! I’d love to hear how it turns out, so make sure to check back and leave a review in the comment section at the end of this recipe!

How to Store Paleo Hollandaise Sauce
For optimal freshness and taste, Hollandaise sauce is best eaten right away. This recipe is intended to make a smaller portion to avoid having leftovers. If you do have extra Hollandaise sauce on hand, no worries, store the sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for no longer than 24 hours. If you are unsure what to do with leftover sauce, try fancying up steamed asparagus, scrambled eggs, broccoli, salmon, or crab cakes.

Basic Staples for Making Paleo Hollandaise Sauce
Eggs – Eggs from local pasture-raised chickens are optimal.
Ghee – Ghee is a butter alternative that has been clarified (simmered and strained to remove all water). If you can tolerate dairy butter, feel free to use it. If you can’t tolerate dairy butter and don’t like to taste of ghee, you can use coconut oil as a replacement to both.
Lemon Juice – The juice of the lemon is used to add a little acidity
