I love eggs benedict. Anytime I go to brunch, which is kind of a lot because brunch is awesome, I always get eggs benedict without the English muffin. Unfortunately, it’s not very filling without the English muffin; so I always ask for a third egg…and extra hollandaise (love that shit). So I’m not only asking for a modified order with no muffin, I’m also asking for an extra egg and extra hollandaise sauce. Yes, I am that girl. I always apologize in advance for my complicated orders. I assumed EB was hard to make due to the hollandaise sauce. Turns out, it’s actually really easy. When you make it my way at least. I don’t know about other people but I imagine they’re less efficient.

For the eggs and muffin

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 grain-free English muffin cut in half
  • few slices of smoked salmon

For the hollandaise

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp dill


  • Boil some water.
  • Break eggs into a cup, then slowly pour into the boiling water one at a time.
  • Let them cook for 4 minutes, then strain them. Let them dry a bit.
  • Layer 1 side of the muffin, then smoked salmon, then egg, then hollandaise.
  • Melt the butter in a pan over medium-low heat.
  • Break the two egg yolks into a blender or food processor and turn it on.
  • Very slowly, drizzle in the butter. Super slowly!
  • The sauce will thicken, add dill (or sprinkle it on top, like I did because I forgot to add it to the blender).


Use grass-fed butter and pastured eggs for best results!

  1. I make Hollandaise sauce from scratch all the time using a more traditional recipe. It’s all good. But just wanted to say that adding a lemon juice reduction and white pepper make it even better. 😉

    • I do, the link is in the post. Just hover over “1 english muffin” under the ingredients list. It should be highlighted like a link.

    A muffin (American-style muffin in the UK) is a type of semi-sweet cake or quick bread that is baked in portions appropriate for one person. They are similar to cupcakes, although they are usually less sweet and lack icing. Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins or cheese muffins also exist.:..”
