Eggs Benedict

Servings: 3

Time: 25 mins


  • 3 English Muffins, whole
  • 6 Slices Canadian Bacon
  • 2 ½ Sticks Butter
  • 5 Egg Yolks
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 T Lime Juice
  • 1T Moscato Wine
  • 1 tsp New Mexico Red  Chile Powder, to taste
  • 2 T White Vinegar 
  • Paprika, to garnish
  • Chopped chives, to garnish


  1. Bring a pot of water and vinegar to a simmer. 
  2. Toast English Muffins.
  3. Brush butter on toasted muffin. 
  4. Grill Canadian Bacon slices on a grill pan or skillet until brown on both sides.
  5. Crack eggs one by one into a fine mesh strainer to drain off extra water. Set aside in a bowl.
  6. Stir the simmering water in a large, circular motion. 
  7. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, The swirling will keep the egg whites tight as it cooks, keeping it together. Cook for about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and repeat with the remaining eggs. 
  8. Melt 2 sticks of butter for the Hollandaise Sauce.
  9. Separate 5 eggs and place the yolks into a blender along with lime juice, wine, salt, and red pepper. Turn the blender on low to allow the yolks to combine, then begin pouring the  hot butter in a thin stream into the blender slowly to emulsify. 
  10. Place the English muffins on the plate buttered side up. Put a slice of Canadian bacon on each half. Place an egg on top of the bacon and then top with a generous helping of Hollandaise sauce.  Garnish with a sprinkle of the New Mexico Red Chile powder.  

Go Rogue by using lobster or shrimp instead of the Canadian Bacon.
