How I wish I could enjoy this scene every day of the week! Generally described above, eggs benedict is an egg (typically poached), covered with hollandaise sauce (a creamy sauce of melted butter, egg yolks, and lemon juice or vinegar), and Canadian bacon all served on a toasted English muffin. Care to add sautéed mushrooms or spinach? Go ahead!
We were unable to find the bacon (similar to ham) that we used to use in our eggs benedict so we used everyday bacon. I actually prefer this bacon, it adds a nice spice element! Here's how to make your own perfect eggs benedict.
-3 egg yolks
-1 tablespoon lemon juice
-1/2 cup firm butter
-2 English muffins, halved, toasted, and buttered
-8 slices bacon
-Sliced avocado, sautéed spinach, sautéed mushrooms, any other toppers you like!
1. Cook the bacon: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 Celsius), and place racks on baking sheets. Cook the bacon for 15 minutes, set aside.
4. To assemble: Top each English muffin and egg with whatever toppings you choose, if any, then top with a spoonful or two of hollandaise sauce. Enjoy! :)
