¼ cup heavy cream

2 egg yolks

¼ cup butter, melted and unsalted

¾ tsp lemon juice

½ tsp Dijon mustard

A pinch cayenne

A pinch salt

A pinch of black pepper

For Egg Benedict

2 English muffins, cut into half

4 bacon slices


Instructions

  1. Fill a medium saucepan with a cup of water and place a glass bowl over it. Let the water simmer.

  3. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Crack eggs and drop them in boiling water. Let them cook until the egg whites turn white for 4 minutes.
  6. Scope the eggs out and transfer them to a paper towel.
  7. In a skillet, add bacon and cook them until they are ready.
  8. Toast muffins in a toaster oven.

For serving:

Place a slice of bacon on the muffin and top it up with a poached egg. Pour hollandaise sauce. Garnish with chopped chives.

 

Notes

For preparing the hollandaise sauce, make sure the bowl base doesn’t touch the water.

To check the thickness of the sauce, use a wooden spoon, and dip it in the sauce if it coats the back, it means it is ready.

Also, make sure the temperature of the sauce is 160-degree C.

Use a slotted spoon to take the poached eggs out of the water.

You can add tomato slices as well.

The sauce binds everything up and it is finger-licking good.

You can use tomato slices or Canadian bacon. The pairing of different flavors along with the freshness of chives as a garnish is heavenly.
