I've had regular Eggs Benedict at Brennan's in NOLA. This is a version that kicks it up a notch with a little Cajun twist!

How to Make Cajun Eggs Benedict for Two

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR THE HOLLANDAISE:
    Add egg yolk, lemon juice, salt, paprika, and cayenne to a tall, narrow cup that fits the head of an immersion blender. (Or put ingredients in a regular blender)
  2. Melt butter until a thermometer registers the butter temperature at at least 200º F.
  3. Start blending the egg mixture with your immersion blender. Stream hot butter in a little at a time while you run the immersion blender, letting the hot butter cook the eggs and blending until hollandaise is light and fluffy and all butter has been incorporated. (Blend in a few teaspoons of water to loosen it before serving, if it's too thick.)
  4. TO PUT IT TOGETHER:
    Slice the sausage in half lengthwise and then slice in half again across the middle. Heat sausage pieces in a pan until edges are starting to brown
  5. Poach eggs in hot water until whites have cooked completely, about 4 minutes.
  6. While eggs are poaching, toast the English muffin.
  7. Finally - put two sausage pieces cut-side down on top of each English muffin half.
    Top with a poached egg, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Drizzle hollandaise sauce over eggs. Garnish with chopped chives.
