This is another one of those recipes that because of the fancy name people think it must be really complicated to make.  Truth is, it’s not difficult at all.  Plus, having a good hollandaise sauce added to your tool box is a huge thing.  Secret to great flavor here is not skimping on the sauce.

Easy Eggs Benedict        eggs benedict

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • dash white pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 English muffins
  • 8 slices Canadian bacon, warmed
  • paprika

Directions:

  1. For the hollandaise sauce, in the top of a double boiler or in a metal bowl over simmering water, whisk egg yolks, water and lemon juice until blended.  Cook mixture, whisking continuously, until it is just thick enough to coat a spoon and the temperature reaches a safe 160ºF.  Remove from the heat.
  2. Very slowly, whisk in the melted butter and then whisk in the pepper.  Float bowl in a large bowl of warm water.  Keep warm, stirring occasionally until ready to serve.
  3. To poach the eggs, place 2-3 inches of water in a saucepan.  Being the water to a boil and then reduce heat to a gentle, constant simmer.  Break an egg into a small bowl.  Holding the bowl very close to the surface of the simmering water, slip the egg gently into the water.  Do this for 3 more eggs.
  4. Cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes or until the whites are completely set and the yolks begin to thicken.  Use a slotted spoon to remove each egg from the water and repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
  5. Toast and butter the English muffins.  Warm the Canadian bacon.
  6. To serve, place the English muffin on a plate.  Top wth a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg and 2 tablespoons of sauce.  Sprinkle with paprika.
  7. Serve immediately.  Makes 8 servings.

Enjoy!
