Today I have prepared the recipe Asparagus with Ham for you. The classic Hollandaise sauce goes perfectly with this asparagus dish.  

In this article I show you how to prepare the popular sauce Hollandaise cooking video.  

I like this sure-fire variant of the whipped butter sauce and would like to invite you to try this variant. I use Black Forest ham for this asparagus dish because I put the wrapped asparagus spears in the oven. I would also bake boiled ham with cheese. I serve Parma ham or San Daniele ham or Spanish Serano ham cold with warm asparagus.

Let yourself be seduced to cook yourself and try out this asparagus dish. Questions I answer gladly over the comment function at the end of the side. Have fun!

1. Sauce Hollandaise easy to prepare

Here my short instruction for the preparation of the simple sauce Hollandais:

  • I let the sauce be whipped by the kitchen machine.
  • The sauce over the water bath to whip up is void, for it…
  • I heat I the high-grade steel impact bowl of the kitchen machine in the oven at 90°C for 20 minutes.
  • The butter in a pot boil up, brown and by a fine sieve pass, then on 90°C let cool down.
  • Prepare the reduction for the sauce Hollandaise and make ready.
  • Egg yolks separate and make ready.

Prepare the asparagus and ham before the sauces:

  • Peel the asparagus, cook until al dente,
  • wrap the ham around it, put it on the plates,
  • put it in the oven, remove the stainless steel bowl,
  • increase the oven temperature to 140°C, prepare the sauce and place it on the plates.
  • Serve with freshly chopped chives.

  • Prepare the reduction for the Hollandaise sauce: Peel the shallot, cut into fine cubes and bring to the boil with white wine, water, vinegar, parsley, tarragon, bay leaf and peppercorns. Reduce the reduction to 3-4 tablespoons, pass through a sieve and make ready.
  • Heat the butter for the Hollandaise sauce in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Clarify the butter to a light brown shade, then pass through a fine sieve and let it temper next to the stove (approx. 90°C).

  • Remove the warm stainless steel bowl from the oven. Pour the egg yolks into the bowl, let the mixer run at a high speed with the whisk, let the prepared reduction run in slowly.
  • Add the hot butter slowly by the spoonful, then faster. The egg yolks and the butter must emulsify immediately and combine. Season the hollandaise sauce with a little chilli or cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Let the mixer run slowly.
  • Take the plates out of the oven. Place the asparagus spears with the ham on the preheated plates. Pour the Hollandaise sauce over them and decorate with chives. Serve quickly! Enjoy your meal!
  • Important: The Hollandaise sauce can be kept warm in the oven at 90°C for about 15 minutes. Then simply whip again... Put a thin slice of butter on the sauce, so the sauce does not draw any skin when warm!
