How To Make Eggs Benedict with Asparagus

You can never go wrong with eggs benedict in the morning, with its rich hollandaise sauce and creamy eggs and some crisp asparagus to boot.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2English Muffins
  • 4eggs
  • 1tomato,sliced into 4 thin pieces
  • 4slicesbacon,cooked
  • 8fresh asparagus spears
  • 1cupHollandaise Sauce,homemade

Instructions

  1. To poach the eggs, first fill a medium size pot with about 3 inches of water. Heat the water on high heat until it starts to steam and bubble, just before boiling point. If the water is boiling it is too hot!

  2. Crack one egg into a small dish or cup. Add a splash of white vinegar to the pot of water.

  3. Use a large slotted spoon to swirl the water in the pot to create a gentle whirlpool. Carefully pour the egg into the center swirl of the water.

  4. Once the egg is cooking in the water, make sure to watch the water temperature so that the water never begins to boil. (Oftentimes this means adjusting the water to medium heat so that the water stays just below boiling point). The cooking time will depend on desired level of doneness for the yolk.

  5. In the meantime, cook your asparagus. Fill a large skillet with about 1 inch of water. Bring to a simmering boil and add the asparagus spears.

  6. Cook for just a few minutes, until tender. Remove to a paper towel.

  7. Slice the English muffins in half and toast them. Add a tomato slice to each half, followed by a piece of bacon and 2 asparagus spears.

  8. Once the egg is done cooking, remove it from the water with a large slotted spoon and place it on top of the asparagus.

  9. Top the eggs with homemade hollandaise sauce.
