Eggs Benedict for Two - With Smoked Salmon

Eggs Benedict for Two - With Smoked Salmon created by Um Safia

I absolutely adore poached eggs on toast so for me Eggs Benedict is really something to enjoy. If you have a toaster that will accommodate split muffins, feel free to toast them in that instead of under the grill. As I don't eat ham / prosciutto, I make my Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon which also adds a lovely elegant touch in my opinion. Save this recipe for special days such as birthdays & anniversaries, better still drop hints for someone else to make it for you :wink:

ingredients

directions

  • Heat the grill / broiler. Put a large pan of water to boil over a high heat. As soon as the water starts boiling, reduce heat so the water is just simmering.
  • Poach the eggs: crack one egg into a cup and gently slip the egg into the water. Place the 3 remaining eggs into the water using the same cup method, making sure to keep the eggs away from each other. Immediately turn the heat down to it's lowest setting & time the eggs for 3 minutes.
  • Split the muffins & toast under the grill / or in a toaster.
  • Make the Hollandaise: Heat the butter in a small pan or in the microwave, until it is bubbling & totally liquid. Do not let the butter brown.
  • Crack the remaining eggs into a blender, put the lid on & leave the spout / hole open. Start the blender & pour the butter through the spout / hole in a steady stream - this will thicken the eggs. Add the lemon juice & season well to your taste with freshly milled blackk pepper & salt.
  • Place the split muffins on 2 plates ( 2 half muffins on each plate).
  • Top the muffin halves with the smoked salmon.
  • Drain the poached eggs & place one on each muffin half.
  • Spoon a little hollandaise sauce over each egg & serve immediately.

    I would have given this five stars (I love smoked salmon instead of ham in this dish), except: 1) The ingredients for the hollandaise and the egg dish itself are not separated, which might be confusing. It says 'serves two,' which means that each person would get two egg/smoked salmon/english muffins. So that's four eggs, which leaves two eggs for the hollandaise. 2) Also, in my experience hollandaise is made with lemon juice, butter, and egg YOLKS. The hot melted butter is added to the yolks in a slow, steady stream. Not whole eggs, just the yolks. I appreciate that you haven't included cheese in this recipe, as so many of the other recipes do. Cheese turns this from eggs benedict into a mcmuffin.
