Foolproof Eggs Benedict Recipe

Blender hollandaise is the easiest way to make hollandaise sauce the foolproof way! Pair that with our favorite tool for poaching eggs and you have Eggs Benedict in no time with no failures. 

Making hollandaise sauce can be a bit temperamental and so there are lots of my friends who never make it at home. I have introduced several of them to this blender method and they love it! It’s a very slightly different mouth feel than a hand whisked sauce but it’s so easy that more than makes up for it. 

Eggs Benedict 01

To start off our hollandaise melt your butter in a pan until it is frothy. 

Eggs Benedict 08

Add your egg yolks, seasoning and lemon juice to the blender.

Turn on the blender and as it is whirling slowly add the hot butter in a thin stream until fully combined. Be sure to carefully open and then recover the blender hole with a towel or it will be a big mess. 

It will turn light and fluffy as it blends into the sauce.

If you are ready you can serve immediately otherwise setting the blender in a pan of warm water will help hold the sauce at temperature.

To start off our Eggs Benedict we want to get the bread toasted, the ham frying in a pan and the eggs poaching. 

Eggs Benedict 05

We love using poaching pods for making our poached eggs. If you have access to fresh eggs from the farm or your backyard poaching eggs can be a very simple process. If however, you rely on the grocery store, you may have run into a lot of failed poached eggs. That’s because most grocery eggs are quite old. Nothing to be grossed out by but they do not poach fabulously. 

Eggs Benedict 03

These egg poachers make simple work of poaching the eggs no matter if they are very very fresh or not. Spray them with a bit of non-stick spray to help your eggs slide right out at the end. 

Eggs Benedict 02

They tuck right under the lid to help hold them in place. Bring the water to a boil, add a splash of white vinegar and poach your eggs for 3-5 minutes depending on what consistency you like. 

Once they are ready combine everything for the perfect Eggs Benedict!
