  • Summary

    Decadence is what makes eggs Benedict a star of the brunch table. To get there, order and timing are key. First, you'll want to make your hollandaise. While intimidating in theory, the process is a lot like making mayonnaise. If the emulsion is stable, it won't break, even when held at room temperature. Next, poach your eggs, and toast the English muffins while you crisp up the Canadian bacon. From there, it's as simple as stacking your ingredients and sprinkling them with herbs, salt and pepper. Once you’ve mastered this basic version, you can explore its variations: Add sliced avocado, or even swap in some smoked salmon (eggs Hemingway) or wilted greens for the Canadian bacon (eggs Florentine).

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
    • 3 large egg yolks
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne or hot paprika, plus more to taste
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
    • Kosher salt
    • 8 large eggs
    • 4 English muffins, split
