How to Make Easy Eggs Benedict

My easy recipe simplifies how Eggs Benedict is made so that every home cook can enjoy making them for themselves and their family rather than only being able to really enjoy it when you order from the brunch menu on vacation!

Easy Step 1. Bake your Bacon in the Oven.

Place it onto a wire rack situation onto a baking sheet and bake until browned, about 15 minutes.

Easy Step 2. Cook Eggs in the Oven.

Rather than poaching eggs over a low simmer on the stovetop, I use my oven. While your bacon is baking, simply add water to each cup of a muffin pan and then add your egg. Place your muffin pan filled with eggs into the oven the last few minutes of the cooking time for your Canadian bacon.

Easy Step 3. Toast Your English Muffin.

Pop your buttered English Muffins into the oven at the same time as your eggs. They do well on the bottom rack of the oven.

Easy Step 4. Make Blender Hollandaise Sauce.

Use my easy blender hollandaise sauce recipe to make the hollandaise sauce while the bacon, eggs, and toast are finishing cooking.

This updated method is perfect for serving Eggs Benedict to larger crowds. The recipe makes for six people, but can easily be adjusted to serve more. You’ll most likely notice that I even doubled my recipe to easily serve a larger group!

Here’s the recipe for my Easy Eggs Benedict. It really is so simple that I feel like I’m cheating or something when I serve it.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400º F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place bacon on a fully rimmed baking sheet (edges on all four sides) that has been topped with a wire cooling rack. Bake until the meat has browned, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of water to each cup of the muffin pan. Crack an egg into each individual indention, taking care not to break the yolk of the egg. Place in the oven along with the bacon the last 9-10 minutes of cooking.
  • Place English muffins on another baking sheet. Spread with butter and place in oven at the same time as adding eggs.
  • As your bacon, eggs, and muffins are baking, prepare your hollandaise sauce. Pour into a serving container.
  • To assemble Eggs Benedict, place English Muffins on each plate, top with one slice of bacon. Using a silicon spatula, gently remove a poached egg from the muffin tin, draining on a thick kitchen towel before placing on top of the bacon.
  • Drizzle with hollandaise sauce and serve warm.
