The Technique

Classic Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict is a special meal ideal for breakfast & brunch gatherings. Although it requires several steps, a little planning forethought will go a long way & guests will certainly appreciate your efforts. Homemade English muffins make this recipe particularly tasty as the dough begins with a starter that imparts bold sour flavor into the bread. Canadian bacon & ham are more traditional ingredients found in Classic Eggs Benedict but I find that a little country ham makes the meal a bit more indulgent. Learn how to prepare this breakfast table speciality perfect for a small gathering with close friends.

Classic Eggs Benedict begins with a lovely toasted English muffin. Generally topped with Canadian bacon or ham, country ham is a fine substitution. The dish is then finished with a gently cooked poached egg so that the center is still a bit soft set. Classic Hollandaise Sauce completes the combination for a rich breakfast meal that is difficult to resist.
