One of my favorite breakfast items is eggs benedict. If we go out to breakfast and the place has ol' eggs benny, you can be sure that I'll order them. But we don't go out to breakfast much, so I decided I'd make my own Hollandaise and Lazy Man's Eggs Benedict.
And don't forget to add a bit of salt and pepper.
Now to assemble the Lazy Man's Eggs Benedict. Usually eggs benny is made with a toasted English muffin, a slice of Canadian bacon, and a poached egg.
Now you can pour the hollandaise over the top. So, so delicious!!
Recipe: Hollandaise Sauce
4 egg yolks
1 stick butter, melted and bubbly-hot
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
Pour the yolks into a bowl (or a food processor or blender, if using those kitchen tools). Slowly add butter, using the blender/processor the entire time to incorporate butter.
Blend until yolks are light in color and have thickened in texture.
Add lemon juice, hot sauce, and mustard. Blend well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place container of hollandaise in a warm water bath, if not serving immediately.
