american, breakfast, brunch, canadian bacon, eggs, hollandaise, poached eggs
a small saucepan
a medium sized pot
heat proof bowl
a frying pan
salted or unsalted
juice of half a lemon
Make clarified butter
So we add 250 grams of butter to a small saucepan.
Let it melt slowly and skim the foam off the top.
Keep going until no more foam
Then pour the butter through a muslin-lined sieve or a coffee filter if you don’t have muslin.
Make hollandaise sauce
Put a pot with water at the bottom on medium-low heat.
Grab a metal or glass bowl that fits over the top. It mustn't touch the water when you put it on the pot.
Put three egg yolks in the bowl. Add the juice of half a lemon.
Whisk until it’s foamy, then put the bowl on top of the pot. You keep whisking until the sauce is thick and creamy.
Whisk until the egg mixture is warm and then add a little butter.
Keep adding butter, first very little, then steadily until the sauce has the right consistency.
If the sauce gets too thick, just add a bit of water until you have the right consistency.
Then season with salt and pepper.
Put the sauce in a small bowl and cover it with cling film until you need it.
Fry up the bacon
Then put four pieces of Canadian bacon on a pan and fry it on both sides.
If you can't get Canadian bacon, you can use a lovely smoked ham instead.
Toast the muffin
Use a fork and split open your English muffin and then toast it.
Poach the eggs
It's a good idea to crack the eggs and put them in individual bowls before starting.
Put a good pot of water on high heat until it’s boiling. Then turn it down to a simmer.
Add a tablespoon of vinegar. Swirl the water around to create a vortex.
Drop an egg down into the water, and go close to the edge. Then follow with the rest, making sure not to hit the last eggs.
Let them cook for about 4 minutes and then fish them out of the water using a slotted spoon or a spider.
Grab four plates for the eggs benedict.
First, add a piece of toasted English muffin.
Add a piece of fried Canadian bacon on top of the muffin.
Then add a poached egg on top of each piece of ham.
Season the eggs with salt and pepper.
Top each delicious hollandaise and some fresh chives.
