Ok guys, I promise that we’ll get to some non-breakfast-y recipes here again next week.  ?

But, after yesterday’s tutorial on how to make blender hollandaise sauce, plus last week’s new video on my favorite way to make poached eggs, I couldn’t resist wrapping things up with one of my all-time favorite recipes that puts those both to delicious use:

Classic Eggs Benedict.

Whether you love making them with Canadian bacon or traditional bacon (or go the “Florentine” route with spinach and tomatoes, like my vegetarian fiancé), the good news is that classic Eggs Benedict are actually incredibly easy to make at home.  And if you’re up for a little bit of multi-tasking, this decadent dish can also be made incredibly quickly, in just about 15 minutes for two servings.  And with that toasted English muffin, salty bacon, soft poached egg and buttery hollandaise sauce — I mean, really — what’s not to love?!

Alright, if you’re a sleeper-in-er on weekends like me, and time spent cooking in the morning is of the essence, here’s my tips on multitasking Eggs Benedict quickly and easily:

  1. Lay out all of your ingredients.  Once you start cooking this recipe, everything goes pretty quickly, so it’s good to have things ready.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a simmer for the poached eggs + start melting the butter for the hollandaise over low heat.  Stove to-do-list: check!
  3. Add the beginning hollandaise ingredients to the blender.  Yolks + lemon juice + salt + cayenne.  Then leave them there for a few minutes until you’re ready to blend the sauce.
  4. Poach your eggs + toast your bread.  And definitely set the timer for your poached eggs so that they cook for the correct amount of time.
  5. Start assembling your little sandwiches, as the ingredients are ready.  Toasted muffin (buttered, if you’d like) + Canadian bacon + poached eggs.
  6. Once the last egg goes in the water to begin cooking, make your hollandaise sauce.  Then taste, and season with extra lemon juice, salt and/or cayenne if needed.
  7. Drizzle on the hollandaise. Plus optional toppings if you’d like, such as fresh chives, parsley, cayenne, pepper, etc.
  8. Then…
