What to do with leftover Bearnaise?

I found a very easy recipe for Bearnaise, Friday Grilling: Easy Bearnaise Sauce | Michael Ruhlman. It makes about twice as much as we want for two steaks. I don't think I can cut the recipe in half. I don't think the immersion blender would work with half.

Does anyone have any suggestions for something to do with the left over half? I don't think I can safely keep it in the fridge with the raw egg. I'm wondering if it can be cooked in some nice way.

I did a quick search and found this: Using up the bernaise sauce....

Maybe jennyema will weigh in on how she stores it, if she does.

I would go with a variation of eggs Benedict swapping out the hollandaise for bearnaise or use it on some steamed broccoli.

I would just slather it on the corn on the cob.

You could also use it as a spread for a leftover steak or roast beast sandwich the next day.

Esquites! Just replace the mayo with bearnaise. http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ad-recipe.html

Thanks for the suggestions.

I was thinking eggs Benedict too, but I don't have any English muffins or back bacon. English muffins could be made. I suppose regular bacon could be used.

How long would the Bearnaise be safe in the fridge?

I honestly don't know, but I would think a day or two.

I'm sure it is. I saw that you wrote that in the old thread about leftover Béarnaise. Problem is, I would have to make the tortellini. I've never seen ready made whole wheat pasta on tortellini.
