Bacon and Legs - Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch
Recipe type: Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch
  • 1 English muffin
  • 2 eggs
  • hollandaise sauce (recipe below)
  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked and cut in half
  • chives, for garnish
  1. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to a sub-simmer.
  2. Place a mesh strainer over a bowl and crack your first egg into it. Gently shake the strainer to remove any loose egg. Slowly tip it into the water. Swirl the water lightly until the egg has firmed up a bit, around 15 seconds. Let the egg cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the white is fully set and the yolk is still soft. Repeat with other egg.
  3. Toast your english muffin. Top with three half-slices of bacon per side. Remove the poached egg from the water with a slotted spoon and place on top of the bacon. Top each egg with a spoonful of hollandaise sauce and garnish with chives. Serve alongside an English fry-up, if desired.
