Classic Eggs Benedict




Classic Eggs Benedict


There are a lot of great egg recipes, but the classic dish of Eggs Benedict is probably one of the most popular; especially for brunch or other special occasions. There is really no one particular Eggs Benedict recipe, rather it is simply the process of putting together a number of different components that work together to make this dish something extraordinary. Take a toasted English muffin (or try this recipe with our delicious English Muffin Bread), top it with a slice of Canadian bacon, a perfectly poached egg, and spoon on a creamy, rich hollandaise sauce and you’ve got a breakfast that’s great for a special celebration or a relaxing weekend at home.




4 English muffins, split
8 slices Canadian bacon
8 poached eggs
Hollandaise sauce
paprika, for garnish
snipped chives, for garnish



Preheat Broiler.

  1. Prepare Hollandaise sauce; set aside and keep warm.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the bacon on both sides; remove from heat and keep warm.
  3. Poach eggs; drain on paper towels or clean dish towel.
  4. Place English muffins, sliced side up, on a baking sheet. Toast under broiler, watching carefully so they do not burn.


Assemble the Eggs Benedict:

  1. Place both halves of a toasted English muffin on a warmed plate. Top each half with a slice of Canadian bacon, and a poached egg. Spoon some hollandaise sauce over eggs, letting it run down the sides of the English muffin.
  2. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and a few snipped chives.
