Please note that all microwaves are different. The times
in this recipe are for a 650-750 watt microwave oven. Stronger
microwaves will obviously require less time.
Place butter in a 2-cup glass bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute.
Stir in lemon juice, cream, dry mustard, salt, hot sauce, and
egg yolks in this order. Whisk well before placing in microwave.
Heat on high temperature for 1 minute, whisking strongly for
5 seconds every 15 seconds. If you have a powerful microwave,
be sure to stir at shorter intervals to avoid scrambling the
eggs. Remove from the microwave and continue to whisk for at
least 30 more seconds until smooth.
