 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  Cup           mayonnaise
    2      Tablespoons   lemon juice
    4      Tablespoons   butter or margarine
    2                    egg yolks
    1      Pinch         cayenne pepper
    1      Pinch         salt
 
 Combine mayonnaise and lemon juice in the top of a double boiler. Place
 over barely simmering water and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes,
 or until warm, but not hot.
 Add the butter and egg yolks. Cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute, or
 until mixture becomes thick enough to coat a spoon. Watch carefully. If
 mixture gets too hot, the eggs will curdle. Remove the top of the couble
 boiler from the water and stir in the cayenne
 pepper and salt. Serve over broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, asparagus,
 globe artichokes, poached eggs and poached or baked fish.
