Eggs Benedict


Eggs Benedict has only four ingredients. Toasted English Muffin, Canadian Bacon and poached eggs all topped with delicious Hollandaise Sauce! I was thrilled how wonderful this turned out. You can make this delicious Eggs Benedict for breakfast or if you’re like me, eat it for supper!

Below is the link for the Hollandaise Sauce.








Cut the English Muffin in half.



Toast the two halves.



Cook your Canadian Bacon over medium heat

in a frying pan just to get it hot.



Place the hot Canadian Bacon on the toasted English Muffin halves.



Bring a small pot of water to a boil over medium

low heat and carefully drop the eggs in to

poach them. Set the timer for 4 minutes.



Use a slotted spoon and remove the eggs from the water immediately.

Place the eggs on top of the Canadian Bacon.



Using a large spoon, pour the warm

Hollandaise Sauce on top of the eggs.

Yes they tasted as good as they look!

  1. My husband LOVES Eggs Benedict. I have never tried to make it. I think I will just stick to letting him order it when we go out for breakfast!

      • Sometimes a lot of steps to a recipe is not that bad when some things can be getting done, while you are doing something else. Like the muffins can be toasting while the bacon is frying so you really only have to watch the eggs. But, I will leave it to “something my hubby eats while out”. 🙂

  2. My favourite breakfast, but one I usually save for when I’m out. I know you can’t get the Thermo-mix in America, but if ever it does get there, you’d love it Diane. It makes the best Hollandaise and all from scratch. I do sometimes cook these at home for a special occasion, and seeing your recipe is definitely tempting me.

    • Thank you Chris! This was my first time making it from scratch and I love how it turned out. I looked up the Thermo-mix and it is $1,850.00 on Amazon! My goodness it does everything! A little too expensive for my blood…lol

    • It would be a nice treat for her. What I put on the two Eggs Benedict in the picture was about half of the sauce so it doesn’t make a lot. I made two more for breakfast the next day with the leftover sauce. So good!
