Simple Eggs Benedict
- English Muffins
- Ham or Bacon
- Poached Eggs
- Hollandaise Sauce
- Egg Yolk
- Lemon Juice
- Salted Butter
Prepare by toasting your English muffins and using your microwave egg poacher to make two eggs. Fry your bacon or ham in a pan and place on top of the sliced English muffin followed by your two poached eggs. The hollandaise sauce is the hardest part to make.
First, whisk or stir together two egg yolks and one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice until the mixture is light and frothy. Continue by placing mixing bowl into hot, simmering water, add very small amounts of warm butter, and continue mixing until sauce emulsifies and serve over poached eggs immediately for best results.
Tomato Poached Egg Pasta
- 1 cup linguini pasta
- 3 eggs poached
- 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese
The idea with this recipe is to use very little tomato sauce. What you are looking to taste most is the poached eggs with fresh parmesan. Too much tomato sauce will drown the richness of those fresh eggs and sharp cheese. After boiling and draining your pasta, add the tomato sauce and stir just until the pasta is fully covered. Serve the pasta on a plate or bowl before carefully placing your poached eggs on top of the linguini. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil evenly throughout followed by your parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
