Eggs Benedict

One of my favorite breakfast meals of all time is Eggs Benedict. I think the Hollandaise sauce is what brings the flavors together. For that reason I recommend staying away from that packaged stuff you buy at the store. Instead make your own homemade Hollandaise sauce, as it isn't that difficult. I also show you how to make your poached eggs ahead of time to take the stress out of this normally difficult breakfast meal. Let me show you how.



English Muffins

Canadian Bacon


1 Tablespoon Vinegar

Salt & Pepper

Hollandaise Sauce:

3 Egg yolks

Juice of 1 Lemon

1 stick of Butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

Hot sauce (I used Sriracha)

Start by bringing 1 1/2-1 3/4 inches of water to barely a simmer in a large frying pan. Water temperature should be around 190 degrees. Break eggs into cups. When water temperature is reached pour 1 Tablespoon of Vinegar into the water. Stir to mix and to remove any air bubbles on the bottom of the pan.

Slowly place the egg cups into the water and tilt until the eggs drop into the water. Cook for 4 and half minutes, or until the yolks and whites have firmed up. Gently remove with a slotted spoon and place in ice water. You can keep them in your refrigerator in the ice water for up to 8 hours. When ready to serve simply place the eggs back into the 190 degree water for exactly a minute to heat up.

Hollandaise Sauce:

Melt 1 stick of Butter in a sauce pan. Place 3 Egg yolks into a container and add the Lemon juice. Carefully add the melted butter slowly while using a mixer or immersion circulator. Add hot sauce to taste, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Sauce should coat the back of a spoon. If sauce is too thick you can add 1 teaspoon of warm water at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.

When you are ready to serve butter your English Muffins and toast. Heat up the slices of Canadian Bacon. Place the Canadian Bacon on the toasted muffin slice. Next place the re-heated poached egg on top. Last step is to add the Hollandaise sauce on top. Serve and enjoy!
