Asparagus is a classic go-along! Our easy recipe for asparagus with traditional hollandaise sauce will make all your entertaining memorable.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
What To Do:

  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat butter at 90% power for 40 seconds, or until melted.
