Easy Eggs Benedict

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices Canadian bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 English muffins (toasted)
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 dash ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Fry the Canadian bacon in a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. Cook on each side until evenly browned.
  2. To make the poached eggs, fill a large saucepan with 3 inches water and bring to a boil. Pour in the vinegar and break the eggs carefully into the water. Cook them for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the whites are set but yolks are still soft.  Remove eggs with a slotted spoon.
  3. To make the hollandaise sauce, melt the butter until bubbly in a small pan. Remove from heat to avoid burning. Briskly whip the egg yolks, heavy cream, cayenne pepper and salt until creamy. Add the hot butter slowly while continuing to blend the mixture. Add the lemon juice using the same technique. Set sauce aside until ready to serve.
  4. When ready to serve, place the toasted English muffin on a plate. Top with a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg and drizzle with hollandaise sauce to finish.
