Making eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict look so tempting, don’t you think?

I’ve never tried them, but from the pictures I see from menus at cafes, I sort of could imagine how they’d taste like. The other day while deciding what to make for breakfast, I asked Reza if he’d like to try eggs benedict instead of our usual french toast, explaining that the egg will be cooked differently this time i.e. poached. He had no idea what I was talking about lol.

So I googled for the simplest recipe for eggs benedict and the hollandaise sauce I could find (out of the hundreds!) and later made Reza drive out to get the ingredients from the grocer. They’re pretty basic — eggs, butter, english muffin, coarse black pepper, white pepper, vinegar, lemon juice, and parsley.

Six saucepans and several bowls and more than an hour later (have I told you that I’m a ridiculously inefficient cook?) here’s the result:

P1390003

Taste wise, I think the eggs benedict and hollandaise sauce I made were of decent quality (although I may have put too much lemon in it). Don’t they look gooood? Ended up making them again the next day.

Try out the recipe here.

      It took me plenty of practice to get the egg right. I was told to add vinegar in the boiling water to make the egg stick better and it worked 😉

      You can get english muffins from the bakery inside Jaya Grocer. It’s pretty good, but you’ll need to put it inside the microwave to soften it up before serving.

        Thanks for the tip 🙂 I’ll try adding vinegar next time. Will also look out for English muffins the next time I head to Jaya Grocer.

        Thanks Again!

          Not too much vinegar! Or it may affect the taste. A tbsp or 2 of vinegar with a pinch of salt works great.
          Great job, Mia! This look delicious! 🙂
