Great for breakfast, lunch, or brunch, Eggs Benedict is the meal for you. Read on, DealDash is cooking Eggs Benedict…
Eggs Benedict was originally made in New York but is enjoyed by people all over the world. Eggs Benedict is a traditional American brunch or breakfast food. Brunch is great every day but is typically served on Sundays. Eggs Benedict consists of two halves of an English muffin, and each half is covered with a choice of Canadian bacon or ham, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce. The hollandaise sauce is really the thing that will set your Eggs Benedict apart from the rest. Read on for an Eggs Benedict recipe, from DealDash.
Here are the ingredients for the hollandaise sauce:
- 4 Egg yoks
- 1 TBS lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 Stick of butter, cut into tiny cubes
- Salt, to taste
- Cayenne pepper, to taste
Here are the directions for the hollandaise sauce:
- Melt the butter in a pan, then set aside
- If you have a double boiler, used that. Otherwise, fill a pan about a ⅓ full of water and heat until you see a couple thin streams of bubbles. Place a heat-safe metal or glass bowl snugly on top of the pan, without touching the water.
- Add your egg yolks and lemon juice to the double boiler. Whisk constantly and vigorously until the mixture becomes frothy and lighter in color. This can take more time than you expect, up to 10 minutes.
- Add your melted butter slowly by pouring the butter in a small, steady stream, whisking constantly and vigorously. The sauce should thicken easily at first, then become more difficult to combine. Pour more slowly as this happens, since too much butter can cause the sauce to split. This will take a few minutes.
- Add your salt and pepper to taste.
- Cover your bowl and keep warm while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients.
Here are the ingredients for the rest of the meal:
- Canadian bacon or ham
- English Muffins
Here are the directions for the rest of the meal:
- Heat the Canadian bacon (or ham) in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for a few minutes until it starts to brown, turning occasionally. Keep warm.
- Cut each English muffin in half and place them on a baking sheet, cut sides up. Butter the cut sides lightly and toast under the broiler until light brown.
- Time for the egg! Fill a wide nonstick skillet or shallow pan half full of water. Heat until there are a couple thin streams of bubbles.
- Crack one egg into a small bowl, taking care not to break the yolk. Gently lower the edge of the bowl into the water, letting some water flow into the bowl. Tip the bowl to slide the egg slide into the water. Quickly repeat with however many eggs you would like to cook.
- Cook for 3½ minutes until the egg white is set but the yolk remains soft. Remove with a slotted spoon, allowing the water to drain off of the egg.
- Time to put it all together! Place your muffin halves on each plate. Lay a slice of the Canadian bacon on top of each muffin half, followed by a poached egg. Spoon Hollandaise sauce generously over the eggs.
- Enjoy your brunch!!
