Eggs Benedict

Ingredients (Serves 1)

Poached Eggs

  • 2 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Free Range Eggs

Hollandaise Sauce

  • 125g Butter
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 tsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1tsp Lemon Juice
  • Pinch of Cayenne pepper

To Serve

  • Toasting Muffin
  • Your choice of accompaniments, e.g Parma Ham, Bacon or Mushrooms
  • Salt & Pepper

Hollandaise Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Keep it warm without burning it.
  2. Combine the 2 egg yolks, white wine vinegar, a pinch of salt and a splash of cold water in a bowl. Make sure the bowl can sit inside a small pan.
  3. Whisk the mixture, then place the bowl inside a small pan of simmering water. Whisk until the mixture becomes pale and thickens. Approx 3-5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat. Stir in the melted butter until you have a creamy hollandaise. Season with a tsp of lemon juice, and a pinch of Cayenne pepper.

Poached Eggs

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add 2tsp of white wine vinegar. Heat at a gentle simmer.
  2. Pre-crack your eggs into separate cups to make the next step easier. Stir the simmering water to form a whirlpool and pour one egg into the middle. Your egg should eventually set to a round shape. Cook for 2-3 minutes before removing with a slotted spoon.
  3. Repeat again with the other egg.
  4. Meanwhile, cut your muffin in two and toast on both sides. Add both halves of your muffin to a plate and spread some Hollandaise sauce on each one. Depending on what you have chosen to serve with your eggs, add the desired accompaniment to each muffin.
  5. Place an egg on each muffin half and spoon over the remainder of the Hollandaise sauce.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and serve!
