In a medium-size bowl, whisk the eggs until smooth.  Next, slowly drizzle the heated butter and lemon juice into the eggs while whisking continuously. 

Whisk the eggs and lemon

Return the mixture to the pot and heat over medium heat. Continue to heat, while stirring, until it is thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
