Fancy Brunch Made Easy: Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict Recipe

If you’re looking to impress your guests at brunch without spending hours in the kitchen, our Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict recipe is the perfect choice. This delectable dish combines the rich flavors of smoked salmon with the creamy goodness of hollandaise sauce, all atop a perfectly poached egg and a toasted English muffin. It’s a brunch masterpiece that’s surprisingly easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices of smoked salmon
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives for garnish

Instructions

  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring it to a gentle simmer. Add a splash of white vinegar.
  2. While the water is heating, make the hollandaise sauce. In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and lemon juice.
  3. Place the bowl over the saucepan with simmering water (double boiler). Slowly drizzle in the melted butter while whisking constantly until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To poach the eggs, carefully crack each egg into a small bowl. Create a gentle whirlpool in the simmering water and slide the eggs into the center. Poach for about 3-4 minutes for a runny yolk or longer for a firmer yolk.
  5. While the eggs are poaching, place a slice of smoked salmon on each toasted English muffin half.
  6. Remove the poached eggs with a slotted spoon, allowing excess water to drain, and place one on top of each salmon-covered muffin half.
  7. Generously spoon hollandaise sauce over each egg, garnish with fresh chives, and serve immediately.
