Classic Eggs Benedict Breakfast

Picture this: a lazy Sunday morning, sunlight streaming through your kitchen window, and the delightful aroma of Classic Eggs Benedict Breakfast wafting through the air. This iconic breakfast dish is a symphony of perfectly poached eggs, velvety hollandaise sauce, and Canadian bacon resting on a crisp English muffin.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 slices of Canadian bacon
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish
  • For the hollandaise sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste


  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring it to a gentle simmer.
  2. In a blender, combine the egg yolks and lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
  3. Slowly stream in the melted butter while the blender is running until the sauce thickens.
  4. Season the hollandaise sauce with cayenne pepper and salt. Blend once more to combine.
  5. Poach the eggs in the simmering water for about 3 minutes for a runny yolk.
  6. While the eggs are poaching, heat the Canadian bacon in a skillet until it’s lightly browned.
  7. Place the toasted English muffins on serving plates, top each half with Canadian bacon, followed by a poached egg.
  8. Generously drizzle hollandaise sauce over each egg, and garnish with chopped chives.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
