Eggs Benedict with Home Made Hollandaise SaucePosted: June 19, 2011
Weekend breakfasts are great! They allow for lazy long mornings where you have time to spend an hour or two making breakfast. I had an awesome such morning this weekend, where I decided it was high time I tried making my own home made eggs Benedict, smothered in home made blender hollandaise sauce.

For the hollandaise sauce, you will need
– 3 large egg yolks
– 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
– 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the eggs benedict, you will need:
– Four medium eggs
– 1 pack of bacon
– 2 pieces of whole wheat multi grain bread
Blender hollandaise sauce instructions:
Put the egg yolk, lemon juice, and cayenne in a blender. Pulse a couple times to combine.
Put the butter in a small microwave safe bowl and melt in a microwave until just melted. With the blender running, gradually add the melted butter into the egg to make a smooth frothy sauce. If the sauce is very thick, blend in a teaspoon of lukewarm water loosen it up. Season with the salt and serve immediately or keep warm in a small heat-proof bowl set over hot (but not simmering) water until ready to serve.
Assembling the benie:
Cook bacon until crisp. Poach eggs to your desired softness. Toast the bread. Layer the bacon and poached eggs on top of toast. Slather generously with hollandaise sauce. Enjoy!
