Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 4 slices of Canadian bacon
  • For the Hollandaise Sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Fill a large saucepan with about 2 inches of water and bring it to a gentle simmer.
  2. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lemon juice.
  3. Place the bowl over the simmering water (double boiler) and whisk continuously until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter, whisking constantly until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm.
  5. While preparing the sauce, toast the English muffins and cook the Canadian bacon in a separate pan until lightly browned.
  6. Poach the eggs: Bring a large saucepan of water to a gentle simmer. Crack each egg into a small bowl and carefully slide them into the simmering water. Poach for about 3-4 minutes for a perfect runny yolk.
  7. Assemble the Eggs Benedict: Place the toasted muffin halves on a plate, top each half with a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a generous spoonful of hollandaise sauce.
  8. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
