We are going to learn how to make Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce, a Gourmet dish, that is literally a 5-star Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner.

I’m going to share with you my Recipe for Eggs Benedict / Benedictine , how to make the Hollandaise Sauce, and how to prepare them quickly and easily, with the Poached Egg and Smoked Salmon. In this case, I have used a Soft Bread, but you can use whatever you want, like a Homemade Bread, or the English Muffin that the Original Recipe indicates.

Recipe for 4 Servings (We eat 2 each)

Preparation Time: 30`

Difficulty: Medium – Easy

Cost per Serving: € 1.95

Pairing: Cava Rosé

One of my favorite ingredients in gastronomy is undoubtedly the egg, not only for its nutritional properties or its intrinsic flavor, but rather for its enormous versatility, always providing a wide variety of nuances and textures. Seamlessly accompanying and thus also modifying the flavors in the preparations.

I fell in love with this recipe of Eggs Benedict in the hotel in which I am currently working and I have been for two years now, the Gran Hotel Ingles, in Madrid. It is a 5-star hotel and there they serve this dish, along with several others, during breakfast and Sunday Brunch. So it would be safe to say that it is indeed a 5-star Brunch.

The recipe is really simple, once you learn how to make the hollandaise sauce, and the poached eggs, the rest will be simply to assemble it and enjoy your breakfast of champions like a vip person!

The origin of this recipe is uncertain, since it is attributed to different places, in different years, but I’d like to point out one place, which is said to serve the original recipe, and that is Delmonico’s Restaurant in New York City. This establishment is considered to be one of the first luxury restaurants.

Ingredients Eggs Benedict

  • Eggs M-L                                        ⇒  4 whole y 2 Yolks

2) Separate the eggs into bowls and add them one by one to the boiling water

Step by Step Eggs Benedict

Free-range Eggs
  • Start by picking 6 medium or large eggs, and set aside 4 to poach them.

Hollandaise sauce


1) Choose two eggs and separate the white from the yolk using the same shell (As I do in the Video). Place the Yolks in a Bowl

Whipped yolk

2) Place the bowl in a double boiler (over a saucepan with boiling water, over the fire or heat)

Yolk with Butter

3) Stir vigorously with a Whisk, and add the butter in small pieces. (The butter has to be cold, not at room temperature, in this way it creates a change in temperatures and does not overheat the mixture)

Whipped yolk

4) Don’t stop stirring while adding more butter, if necessary, remove the Bowl from the heat source for a moment, so that the egg does not clot. Remember that it has to be creamy, not lumpy. (Remove it from heat source a little earlier, as it will thicken a little more when resting)

Whipped Yolk with Pepper

5) Remove it from the water bath, season it to taste (a pinch of each) and add the juice of half a lemon

Whipped Yolk with Lemon

Poached Eggs

Boiling water

1) Boil water with a splash of vinegar in a saucepan


2) Separate the eggs in a bowl, one by one, and add them to the boiling water. Previously to the water, stir it generating a small whirlwind, so that the egg encloses itself.

Poached eggs

3) Count up to 2 minutes, using the timer, and remove the egg from the water by draining it. Repeat the process.

Assembly of the Egg Benedictine

Toasted bread

1) Place the Toast on a plate (you can use another type in addition to the molds, in the original recipe an English muffin is used)

Toasted Bread with Salmon

2) Arrange the Salmon to taste, I like to cover all the bread with the same proportion of salmon.  As the salmon is so greasy, I prefer to help myself with a fork and a knife, and place the salmon over the 4 toasts at the same time so that I can wash my hands and continue with the rest.

Salmon and Arugula Bread

3) If you wish, you can add arugula, basil or any other aromatic plant, I used canons here.

Benedictine Egg

4) At this point, we’re almost finished, add the poached egg, and a little pepper on top (optional)

Egg Benedictine

5) Finally, add, the main flavor of this wonderful Brunch, the Hollandese Sauce, or Hollandaise. Enjoy!!! 😀

Detailed Cost Breakdown – Eggs Benedictine Recipe

Detailed Cost Breakdown - Eggs Benedictine Recipe


In short, we see that per serving, that is, a toast, with its salmon, aromatic grass, poached egg and hollandaise sauce, costs us nothing more than € 2. You best believe we eat two toasts each time we cook them, but think about eating this delight for well under € 5, Breakfast (or sometimes also dinner) for two, in less than half an hour, for about € 8. Definitely worth it!. This is one of those VIP meals that always feel good to eat. So go on, try it!

By the way, if you don’t want to make it with salmon, you can do it with any other smoked product, or if you don’t have salmon at hand, you can also prepare it with ham, bacon, or whatever your imagination tells you, it will surely be perfect. As I said before, for me the main thing in this recipe is the hollandaise sauce, best part you can add it to endless recipes.

Fermentación – TODO lo que Debes SABER | GUÍA para Principiantes

La fermentación es el proceso metabólico anaeróbico, que convierte el azúcar en ácidos, gases o alcoholes. La levadura y muchos otros microbios comúnmente usan este proceso para cambiar su respiración a anaeróbica para sobrevivir. La fermentación ha sido utilizada conscientemente por los seres humanos desde aproximadamente 5000 a. C.
Esta actividad de fermentación permite que los alimentos modifiquen su sabor al mismo tiempo que aumentar su vida útil (permitiendo su conservación).
En la actualidad consumimos una gran variedad de alimentos que han sufrido un proceso de fermentación y que son familiares, ejemplos de ello son: el vino, la cerveza, la salsa de soja, el vinagre, los quesos, el yogur y el pan.
