Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2006. Show: Emeril Live, Episode: Gospel Brunch. Use DiBs' Creole Essence / Bayou Blast or my Caribbean Conch Fritters With Island ' Hot' Sauce for the recipe for the Essence or Creole Seasoning or Bayou Blast - they all are recipes for the seasoning. We had a trial-run of this dish and it turned out quite expensive - since there were at least 20 of us - the beef fillets were a bit pricey but otherwise the dish is very reasonable.

  1. Preheat a griddle or large skillet.
  2. Brush the muffins with the butter.
  3. Place the muffins on the hot griddle and pan-fry for 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Remove the muffins from the griddle and set aside.
  5. Using a sharp knife, split the fillets in half, horizontally.

  14. When the water returns to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the eggs are set, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.

  16. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.

  24. To assemble, place the steaks on the English muffins.
