4 Simple Steps to Ace the Eggs Benedict Recipe
For the hollandaise sauce
In a bowl, separate the egg yolks and egg whites. Place a saucepot filled with water on medium-high heat. Then, place a glass bowl over the saucepot, making it a double boiler. Add the egg yolks and a dash of salt to the bowl. Squeeze in some lemon juice for enhanced flavour. Start whisking the mixture gently. Once the eggs start cooking, add unsalted butter. To spice it up, add paprika and ground pepper. Once you get a creamy texture, turn off the heat.
Place a saucepot on medium-high heat filled with water. Add white distilled vinegar to the water and bring it to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, turn off the heat. Crack the eggs in a separate bowl and carefully add the eggs from the bowl into the hot water. Place a lid on the pot and let it sit for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place them on a tissue paper.
Place a large skillet pan on medium-high heat and add unsalted butter. Slice the English muffins and toast them in the butter. Set them aside. Now it’s time to cook the bacon. Add bacon slices to the pan and fry it for 3 minutes on each side until it turns golden.
On a plate, place the sliced English muffin and layer it with a piece of bacon. Top it off with the poached eggs and drizzle the creamy hollandaise sauce. Finish it off by sprinkling some chives. Voila! Your English breakfast is ready.
You can also make the hollandaise sauce in a blender.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we need to add vinegar while poaching eggs?
Vinegar doubles up the heating process. This helps the egg white to become consolidated into a solid white form.
What is the alternative for bacon?
You can use chicken salami or avocado as a replacement.
