Cut bunch of broccoli into bite-size broccoli florets with about 1/2 to 1-inch stems. Trim any large leaves off of florets. Place florets in a vegetable steamer and rinse under cold water. Heat about 1 inch of water to boiling in a saucepan. Once water
reaches a boil, place vegetable steamer with broccoli florets in saucepan and cover. Steam for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender to the bite. Serve florets on a platter or other serving dish with a bowl of Hollandaise Sauce for dipping.

Hollandaise Sauce
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the top of a double boiler (or in a heat-proof bowl placed on top of a saucepan), then pour gradually into the beaten egg yolks, stirring constantly. Return yolks to pan and place pan in or over hot water. Add the remaining butter by tablespoons, stirring after each addition until melted. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice, pepper and salt. Serve with broccoli florets as suggested above.
