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:
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.
