Easy Eggs Benedict is a gourmet breakfast option that is deceptively easy to make. Creamy egg yolk, salty delicious Canadian bacon, a quick 5 minute blender hollandaise sauce, and fresh asparagus make this a breakfast you dream about.

I am such a fan of savory breakfasts. If I am going to eat breakfast, it is going to be savory nine times out of ten. I will skip the sweet rolls, the cereals, and the french toast and pancakes, in favor of a good breakfast hash, a breakfast taco, or something with eggs and breakfast meats! And if I am eating it as brinner, then it is savory every time.
My favorite option for breakfast meats is Jones Dairy Farm.
The reason I love their breakfast meats so much is they use only the finest quality ingredients in every product. They have all-natural, Certified Gluten-Free sausages and naturally smoked, dry aged bacon. The Certified Gluten-Free sausages are still made with absolutely no binders, fillers or MSG. Basically they really prioritize the quality of their meats, and this is hugely important to me.
This breakfast it is a spoof on a classic, Eggs Benedict. I use pre-made english muffins, quick poach an egg, use a slice of Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon, and then make this 5 minute blender hollandaise sauce from Cook the Story. It is easy, delicious, and makes this a fast breakfast option, so it can even be made on week days!
Or, my favorite way to enjoy it…for brinner. Jones Dairy Farm offers a whole bunch of brinner recipes you can find here. We all have those days where we need a quick dinner option, and what family doesn’t love brinner? My kids seriously can’t get enough.
And now that this easy Eggs Benedict using my favorite Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon is in the rotation, I can’t get enough either.
Creamy egg yolk, delicious hollandaise, salty Canadian Bacon…seriously. Are you drooling yet? And the compliment of the crisp and fresh asparagus is just one more layer of deliciousness that makes this the ideal breakfast or brinner.
Easy Eggs Benedict
- 4 English Muffins
- 8 large eggs very fresh
- 8 pieces Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon
- Fresh ground pepper
- 4 quarts water
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 5 egg yolks
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne or less to taste
- 1 cup butter melted
- Prepare Hollandaise according to directions. (Below)
- Warm Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon in a fry pan for 1 minute per side over medium heat, set aside
- Poach eggs by filling a pot with 4 quarts water, and 1/3 cup vinegar.
- Bring pot to a steady simmer.
- Crack eggs individually into a ramekin or cup.
- Create a gentle whirlpool in the water by stirring it. This will help to make the egg white wrap around the yolk in the pot.
- Gently pour the egg into the water, white first.
- Cook for 3 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon.
- Meanwhile toast the english muffins
- Assemble by laying toast down, then Canadian Bacon, then poached egg, then hollandaise, and top with some fresh cracked pepper and serve with cooked asparagus.
- Pour the egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne in the blender.
- Blend a few seconds to mix. Then scrape down the sides of the blender.
- Melt the butter in the microwave and with the blender running at medium speed, slowly drizzle the butter into the egg mixture. As it blends it will begin to thicken, pour it slowly as it should thicken by the time you’ve added all the butter.
- Continue to blend for an additional 30 seconds to a minute until desired thickness is achieved.
