Easy Eggs Benedict with Blender HollandaisePosted: February 26, 2012
When I go out for brunch, my favorite thing to order is Eggs Benedict. Its the perfect combination of savory and salty. I have to say, I am quite addicted!
One morning, I got up much earlier than Justin and I felt like surprising him with a seemingly complication breakfast – but it wasn’t. It was actually really easy to make!
It might have helped that I have an egg poacher. Boy do I love my egg poacher!
Hollandaise sauce is notoriously hard to make. There’s a bunch of whisking and exact measurements involved in the traditional method. I used the cheater method: the blender method.
Separate the eggs, yolk from white.
Blend up egg yolks and lemon juice together. While the blender is running, pour in the butter and blend until a thick sauce forms. That’s really all there is to it!
I decided to make these eggs bennie a smoked salmon version. HMM! Smoked salmon is one of my favorite foods of all time. It is soooo amazing! It is even more amazing when taking part in a rock awesome homemade eggs bennie morning.
I served the Eggs Benedict on toast, because I did not have any English muffins. No biggie. It turned out so well. I recommend you surprise your sleeping sweetheart with these the next chance you get!
