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.
