  • 2 English muffins

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Start by toasting the English muffins until they are golden brown.
  2. While the muffins are toasting, fry the bacon until it’s nice and crispy. Set aside on paper towels to drain excess grease.
  3. For the hollandaise sauce, whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice in a heatproof bowl over simmering water until it thickens.
  4. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter while continuing to whisk until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Poach the eggs by gently sliding them into simmering water and cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes.
  6. Assemble your Eggs Benedict by placing a slice of bacon on each toasted muffin half, followed by a poached egg, and then generously drizzle with hollandaise sauce.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy your classic Eggs Benedict brunch!
