If you know me, you know I am not REALLY a breakfast person.
Now it’s not that I don’t love breakfast food, because I do.
It’s all about the time when I eat. When it comes to eating before 9am, I am not super thrilled to be diving into a hearty breakfast.
I would much rather eat something quick and light on the average weekday morning. The days that I do indulge in elevated breakfast foods are reserved for one meal only…
I love any excuse to eat brunch and I don’t care how “basic” that makes me sound.
Brunch includes all of your favorite complex breakfast dishes, but it also includes some lunch items for those days when you just need a greasy burger to ward off that hangover (not that I would know anything about that feeling of course….).
Not to mention, brunch has the added bonus of mimosas and bloody marys to go along with you meal.
The most appealing thing for me is that it’s at an hour in the morning when I actually feel like diving fast first into a giant plate of food.
So let’s talk about this ridiculously amazing dish that has become my new brunch obsession.
I am all about a good BLAT sandwich any given day for lunch, but this eggs benedict takes it to a whole new level of deliciousness.
Not only do you get the bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato combination on a crispy English muffin. You also get a perfectly poached egg that oozes that runny yolk all over the ingredients below.
It’s rich and savory, while also having a plethora of textures from crunchy to chewy, soft to crisp. To top it all off, a tangy creamy lemon hollandaise sauce coats everything with a punch of acid that really wakes up your palate.
This is how you take a classic sandwich and turn it into a brunch meal worthy of taking over your entire Sunday morning.
This Recipe’s Must Haves
- Once you poach eggs in an Instant Pot 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, I can promise you that you will never go back. In just a handful of minutes, you have perfectly poached eggs without having to do anything but add the eggs to greased cups.
- Which greased cups should you add those eggs to? COZILIFE Silicone Egg Poaching Cups! I bought these last month and they are BRILLIANT. Simply grease with butter, ghee, or cooking spray, and then you are good to go. They come out perfectly every single time!
- I love my KitchenAid 12-Inch Compact Convection Countertop Oven to toast all things, like the English muffins in this recipe!
- Don’t have a double boiler to make the hollandaise? Check out this gorgeous Cuisinart French Classic Tri-Ply Stainless 3-Piece Saucepan and Double Boiler Set! If you like to make hollandaise on the regular, or simply need to temper chocolate for the upcoming holidays, you need one of these!
