Avondhu Guesthouse Breakfast Recipe Eggs Benedict
















(Makes 8)


  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar

  • 8 large eggs

  • Hollandaise Sauce 

  • 16 slices bascon 

  • English muffins, split in half, toasted



  1. First

    Fill a large saucepan with about 4 inches of water, add vinegar, and bring to a boil. Fill a shallow dish or pie plate with warm water. Reduce heat under saucepan to medium, so water is just barely simmering. Break 1 egg at a time into a small heat-proof bowl. Gently tip bowl into water; carefully slide egg into water. Repeat with remaining eggs.

  2. Second

    When eggs begin to become opaque, remove them from the saucepan with a slotted spoon in the order in which they were added. Transfer the eggs to the dish of warm water. This process should take about 3 minutes.

  3. Third

    Prepare the hollandaise sauce, and set aside, keeping it warm.

  4. Last

    Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until well browned on both sides. Divide bacon among the English-muffin halves. For each serving, use a slotted spoon to remove one egg from warm water; set spoon and egg briefly on a clean cloth or paper towel to drain. Gently place the egg on a bacon-topped muffin, and spoon the reserved warm Hollandaise Sauce over the top.
