How To Make

  • 1
    First, have a Bloody Mary.
  • 2
    Prepare for the Hollandaise Sauce by placing the 4 egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Place that bowl in a larger bowl of luke warm water. (This gets the chill off the eggs) Put the 2 sticks of butter in a measuring cup.
  • 3
    Have another Bloody Mary.
  • 4
    Fill a large skillet halfway with water, the vinegar and the salt. Bring to almost a boil. In another skillet lightly grill the Canadian Bacon. Keep warm, but do not dry out. Butter the English Muffins and get ready to toast.
  • 5
    Empty the egg yolk mixture into a blender. Everything should be ready to go at this point: Muffins toasting, bacon grilled, water simmering. Melt butter in microwave until hot, about a minute. Run blender on high and slowly add the melted butter. Sauce will thicken. Gently crack and drop each egg into the water in the skillet. Poach for about 2 minutes (you want the yolks to be runny).
  • 6
    To assemble start with the English muffin, then the Canadian bacon, then the poached egg, removed with a slotted spoon. Cover with Hollandaise Sauce. Serve with cheese grits, a grilled tomato, assorted fruit chunks, and.........
