Eggs Benedict Recipe @pinch

Christine has shared step haveby havestep instructions to make a simple Eggs Benedict. Canadian bacon (similar to ham) is typically used, but she substitutes that with crispy pieces of bacon which add a smoky flavor. If you prep the bacon and toast the English muffins ahead of time, the eggs can be poached and the hollandaise sauce can be made in a flash. The homemade hollandaise sauce is creamy. A special breakfast for family and friends. All my friends demand this when we have a weekend get havetogether, so I always keep plenty of eggs and butter on hand and English Muffins in the freezer. I am a baconaholic, so I substitute the ham for bacon. I used to take time and use the stove method for the sauce. But I found out the blender method is just as good, takes about 2 minutes to do, and is pretty much foolproof. Hope you enjoy it. I like to serve this with a side of fruit as It is a super rich meal and the fruit tends to help round it out.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Eggs Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 8 large eggs for poaching
  • 2 tablespoon(s) white vinegar
  • 4 - English Muffins, lightly toasted
  • 16 slice(s) cooked bacon ( or 8 pieces of ham)
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoon(s) lemon juice, fresh or concentrate
  • 1/2 pound(s) melted butter, do not use margarine
  • 1 pinch(es) white pepper
Intructions :
  • Fill a large pot with water, add the vinegar, and bring it to a boil
  • Poach your eggs in this water for 2-5 minutes depending on how well you like your eggs done
  • While they are poaching, split the English Muffins and lightly toast them. Once toasted place on a plate
  • Add bacon or ham. If using bacon, break pieces in half to fit on the muffin
  • Once eggs are poached, remove them from simmering water and drain/blot to remove excess water
  • Place on top of ham/bacon on the English Muffin
  • Sauce: You can do this when the eggs are poaching or right after you take them out. As long as you pre-melted the butter. This sauce takes about 1 minute to make. Put 6 egg yolks, lemon juice, and pepper into the blender and turn to high. Blend for about 30 seconds. Then slowly, very slowly, stream in the melted butter. Take your time with this or you won't get the right consistency
  • Once all the butter is incorporated, pour the sauce over the English Muffins with the bacon/ham and egg on them. Serve right away.
