- 2 English muffins split
- eggs for poaching
- 2 pieces of Canadian bacon
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar
- Scallions for topping
- 1 cup hollandaise sauce
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- Pinch cayenne
- Pinch salt
*Cook up the Canadian bacon in a pan, and toast the muffin in the same pan right before serving.
*Boil 6-8 cups of water and add vinegar. Use a whisk to make a whirlpool swirling motion in the water, and then carefully drop in your eggs from a ramekin. Place the lid on the pot and leave alone for 2 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and cut off any rogue strands.
Make the easy hollandaise:
*Whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl and until the mixture is thickened.
*Place the bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water (the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl). Continue whisking. Be careful not to let it get too hot or the eggs will scramble.
*Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume.
*Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt.
