Hash Brown Benedict

"This is from the William Sonoma catalog -- I cannot wait to try this! I love eggs benedict with a side of hashbrows because I love to mix the hollandaise egg and ham up with the hashbrowns. This sounds like the perfect combination! Although, I think I would use the frozen hashbrowns instead of making my own just for the sake of saving time. Posting here for safe keeping."

Ready In:
12 hash brown benedicts




  • Rinse the potatoes, drain and pat dry. In a bowl, combine the potatoes, cornstarch, salt and black pepper.
  • In 10-inch fry pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Working in batches, form the potato mixture into 1/4-cup patties and drop them into the oil. Cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in a 250°F oven.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice and 2 teaspoons water.
  • Transfer to a double boiler set over medium-low heat, until the water is just simmering inside the double boiler. Whisk constantly until the mixture begins to thicken, then remove from the heat and whisk for 1 minute more.
  • Season with salt, black pepper and cayenne. Whisking constantly, slowly stream in the melted butter until incorporated, then whisk in the chives.
  • Keep the hollandaise sauce warm.
  • Place 2 hash brown patties on each plate. Top each patty with 1 slice of Canadian bacon, 1 poached egg and a spoonful of the hollandaise sauce. Serve immediately.

  1. We really enjoy eggs benedict for a special treat at my house, and this version, using a hash brown base, now reigns supreme. I confess - I did make a few adjustments - I omitted the cayenne (this time) and chives (didn't have any) and replaced the Canadian bacon with regular bacon. Did I mention we now prefer a hash brown base over the traditional english muffin? Thanks SarahBeth! Made for Everyday Holiday Tag-Jan'10.
