  6. Place bowl containing egg mixture nested in a kitchen to help keep bowl in place when whisking in butter.
  7. Very slowly start to add a few drops of melted butter at a time into eggs, whisking constantly, to create an emulsion.
  8. Continue to gradually add in butter, constantly whisking until all of butter is incorporated. The sauce should be thick and velvety.

  3. Crack one egg into a small bowl or ramekin.

  5. Cook until whites are set, 3 to 5 minutes.
