How to Make Eggs Benedict - Delish

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare the Hollandaise sauce:

    In the top of a double boiler combine the egg yolks, water, lemon juice, pepper, and salt. ( I just used a sauce pan, and a bowl.) works fine, just be careful of the steam.

    Add 1 portion of butter, and place over boiling water.
  • 2Cook, slowly whisking, until the butter melts and the sauce begins to thicken.
  • 3Add the rest of the butter and continue whisking until it thickens.
  • 4Brown your ham, Canadian bacon or bacon slices.
  • 5Poach your eggs, I use my egg poaching pan, with the individual cups.
  • 6Toast muffins.

    Place 2 toasted muffins halves on each plate. a slice of ham to each halve. Place a poached egg on each.
  • 7Ladle sauce over each. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Delicious!
