Why Is Hollandaise Sauce So Unhealthy?

Hollandaise sauce is emulsified butter, egg yolks, lemon juice, and salt. While it’s occasionally used to coat poached fish or asparagus, it’s arguably best known as the finishing touch on a plate of eggs Benedict, a brunch favourite. Sadly, as tasty as eggs Benedict can be, Eater reports that hollandaise sauce is notorious for causing food poisoning since the egg yolks aren’t fully cooked before serving.
