Chantilly Sauce

  • Yield: About 1 1/4 cup


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1/4 cup whipped heavy cream


  • In a stainless steel bowl set over a pot of simmering water, whisk the egg yolks with the lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, and water, until pale yellow in color. Season with salt and pepper.
