My weekend eggs benedict recipe


Brunch is one of my favorite pastimes during the weekends.
I usually like exploring different restaurants for brunch but I also enjoy preparing my favorite brunch dish at home... Eggs Benedict!

Ingredients (4 eggs benedict) :

2 English muffins (cut in half)
4 Eggs
6 slices of bacon or Parma ham
2 spoons of vinegar (added to the water to boil the eggs)
Hollandaise sauce (quantity as desired)
Spinach leaves
Chives
Salt & Pepper

1- Pan fry the bacon strips till crunchy as desired - (If using Parma ham do not cook but use fresh)

2- Toast the muffins till golden brown

3- Add the eggs 1 at a time in boiling water in which you have previously added 2 spoons of vinegar to (to keep the eggs from spreading in the water I dip them in with a ladle - as show in the 3rd picture below)

4- On each muffin lay 1.5 stips of bacon, some fresh spinach leaves, the poached egg, a spoon of hollandaise sauce, sprinkle some chives and add salt and pepper as desired.

Enjoy;)
