Ingredients

To make one portion of this mouthwatering Eggs Benedict, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 slices of English muffin
  • 4 slices of crispy bacon or 2 slices of smoked salmon
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • Hollandaise sauce:
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
    • 100g (1/2 cup) of unsalted butter, melted
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives or parsley for garnish

Directions

  1. Fill a medium-sized saucepan with water and bring it to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
  2. While the water is heating up, prepare the Hollandaise sauce. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lemon juice until well combined.
  3. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter while whisking continuously until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  4. In a separate small saucepan, bring water to a boil and add the white vinegar. Reduce the heat to low and gently crack one egg into a small bowl. Create a gentle whirlpool in the boiling water and carefully slide the egg into the center. Poach for 3-4 minutes until the white is set but the yolk is still runny. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Repeat with the second egg.
  5. Toast the English muffin slices until golden brown. Place them on a plate and top each with two slices of crispy bacon or one slice of smoked salmon.
  6. Carefully place one poached egg on each English muffin slice.
  7. Pour a generous amount of Hollandaise sauce over the poached eggs, allowing it to cascade down the sides.
  8. Garnish with freshly chopped chives or parsley for an extra touch of freshness and color.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes/tips

  • For a vegetarian twist, you can replace the bacon or salmon with sautéed spinach or roasted tomatoes.
  • To save time, you can use pre-made Hollandaise sauce, but nothing beats the homemade version for ultimate flavor.
  • Make sure to use fresh eggs for poaching, as they hold their shape better and result in a more visually appealing dish.
  • For an extra indulgence, you can add a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese on top of the Hollandaise sauce before serving.
  • Serve Eggs Benedict with a side of roasted potatoes or a fresh green salad for a complete brunch experience.

There you have it, an egg-citingly delicious twist on the classic Eggs Benedict. With its creamy Hollandaise sauce, perfectly poached eggs, and crispy bacon or smoked salmon, this dish is a brunch sensation that will impress your friends and family. So why wait? Whip up a batch of this delightful brunch favorite and savor every mouthful. Bon appétit!
