  14. 14. Happy’s Kitchen Report<br />Recipe of the Week: Egg’s Benedict<br />Ingredients<br />4 egg yolks <br />3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice <br />1 pinch ground white pepper <br />1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce <br />1 tablespoon water <br />1 cup butter, melted <br />1/4 teaspoon salt <br />8 eggs <br />1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar <br />8 strips Canadian-style bacon <br />4 English muffins, split <br />2 tablespoons butter, softened <br />1. To Make Hollandaise: Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water. Make sure the water does not touch the top pan. Bring water to a gentle simmer. In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 T. water. <br />2. Add melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 or 2 T. at a time while whisking yolks constantly. If hollandaise begins to get too thick, add a teaspoon or two of hot water. Continue whisking until all butter is incorporated. Whisk in salt, then remove from heat. Cover to keep sauce warm. <br />3. Preheat oven on broiler setting. To Poach Eggs: Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add vinegar. Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Yolks should still be soft in center. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on a warm plate <br />4. While eggs are poaching, brown the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and toast the English muffins on a baking sheet under the broiler. <br />5. Spread toasted muffins with softened butter, and top each one with a slice of bacon, followed by one poached egg. Place 2 muffins on each plate and drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve immediately.<br />
