Eggs Benedict

Lou Kostura


I made a Easter Morning treat for a group of friends. They all love eggs benedict, except for 1 vegetarian in the group who I substituted some chopped up asparagus in place of the ham. This made her a happy camper also. The use of farm fresh eggs gives this a deep color as the ranch egg yolks are very dark yellow

How to Make Eggs Benedict


  1. place beaten egg yolks, butter lemon juice cayenne and salt into a double boiler. cook on low heat and keep whisking constantly until thickened. Be careful not to get to hot or you will either get scrambled eggs, or a broken sauce.
  2. Cut muffins in half and toast, lightly fry ham slices
  3. In a wide shallow pan, I use a 12 inch frying pan. Add water and heat to a low boil, add vinegar and slowly add 2 eggs at a time, keeping them separate. Cook approx. 3 minutes lift with slotted spoon and drain excess water
  4. Assembly, place 1 ham slice on each half of muffin, place 1 egg on each ham slice, spoon hollandaise sauce over top, sprinkle with parsley flakes and serve
