Prep: 15 min
Cook Time: 3-5 min for eggs, over all about 10-15 min of cooking.
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon and 2-1/4 teaspoons Yuzu juice OR lemon juice
- 1/2 pinch ground white pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1-1/2 teaspoons water
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 4 eggs
- 1 TBS distilled white vinegar
- 4 strips Canadian-style bacon, or thin sliced
- 2 English muffins, split
- You may want to have extra eggs on hand incase you mess up… 🙂 Just Sayin’ 😉
- To Make Hollandaise: Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water. Make sure that water does not touch the top pan. Bring water to a gentle simmer. In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, yuzu or lemon juice, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tablespoon water.
- Add the melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time while whisking yolks constantly. If hollandaise begins to get too thick, add a teaspoon or two of hot water. Continue whisking until all butter is incorporated. Whisk in salt, then remove from heat. Place a lid on pan to keep sauce warm. This may take 1 or 2 tries… DON”T get it too hot or your will curdle your poor little eggy’s!
- Preheat oven on broiler setting. To Poach Eggs: Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add vinegar. Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Yolks should still be soft in center. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on a warm plate
- While eggs are poaching, brown the ham in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and toast the English muffins on a baking sheet under the broiler.
- Spread toasted muffins with softened butter if desired, and top each one with a slice of ham, followed by one poached egg. Place 2 muffins on each plate and drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve immediately.
ENJOY! Cheers! BEST SERVED WITH A MIMOSA!
