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
