This is an interesting variation on the classic Eggs Benedict.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp lemon and lime juice
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 2 pinches white pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 19 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 english muffins, split and toasted
  • 4 c loosely packed baby spinach leaves
  • 8 eggs

Instructions

  1. Make the hollandaise sauce by creating a double boiler with barely simmering water. In the top bowl, combine the egg yolks, lemon and lime juice and water and whisk constantly until the mixture thickens, then whisk 1 minute more. Remove the top bowl from the heat and add 1/8 tsp salt, white pepper, and cayenne pepper. Melt 16 tbsp butter and slowly pour in the mixture as you blend until fully combined, about 2 minutes. Cover and keep warm over low heat.
  2. Soften remaining butter and spread the cut side of each muffin with 1 tsp of the now softened butter, leaving 1 tsp remaining.
  3. Melt the remaining butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the spinach and cook until slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Keep warm.
  4. Begin poaching eggs by heating a pot of water with 1 tsp salt and 2 tsp white vinegar over medium heat. Create a whirlpool by stirring the water, and crack the egg into the center. Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let the egg sit for 5 minutes. Top a muffin half with spinach, then carefully remove the egg and put on top of the spinach. Smother with some sauce and serve, repeating the process for all the eggs.
