Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler. Lightly grease a large skillet. Add enough water to the skillet to fill half full. Add vinegar. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat to simmering (bubbles should begin to break the surface of the water). Break one of the eggs into a measuring cup. Holding the lip of the cup as close to the water as possible, carefully slip egg into simmering water. Repeat with remaining eggs, allowing each egg an equal amount of space.

It is a good way to make eggs benedict but I like to make the original hollandaise sauce that takes 3 egg yolks for every stick of butter and you have to make sure that you don't cook the egg and poach the egg whites add lemon juice to the hollandaise sauce which is optional I like to use Canadian bacon for the meet and asparagus on the side as the vegetable it tastes very balanced

I would love to try this dish but I have a major major question. Since you've already poached the eggs, wouldn't you be overcooking them by baking them for an additional 25 minutes after you've cooked them? Wouldn't they be completely hard boiled after that? More than hard boiled I would think. I like my eggs Benedict with a moist yolk, in fact, whether it's poached, Sunnyside Up or soft boiled but this recipe seems as if the eggs would be super hard boiled. I didn't know Eggs Benedict can be cooked with a hard yolk. Advise please?
