Eggs Benedict


  • 2 English muffins.
  • 4 thick slices of Canadian bacon (good smoked ham would be a appropriate substitute).
  • 4 Eggs.
  • Hollandaise sauce.
For the Hollandaise sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks.
  • 225 grams unsalted butter.
  • 3 large tablespoons cold water.
  • 1 teaspoon recently squeezed lemon juice.
  • Ground white pepper.
  • Salt to taste.


  • To make the hollandaise, dissolve the butter to just lukewarm.
  • Put the egg yolks and water into a thick bowl over a pot of warm water on a low heat. Make sure the bowl is not touching the water.
  • Using a whisk beat the eggs and water briskly until it becomes thick and foamy.
  • Remove from the heat and beat in the melted butter, a little at a time.
  • Add the lemon juice, season with salt and white pepper and keep the sauce lukewarm.
  • Simmer the eggs in shallow water a little below simmering point.
  • Grill the bacon or ham.
  • Split, toast and then butter each muffin half.
  • Lay a slice of bacon or ham trimmed to fit the muffin, then a poached egg on each muffin and then spoon over some Hollandaise sauce.
  • Serve the remaining sauce in a jug for extras.
