Let’s Taste This Dish!

  • Let’s start off by toasting an English muffin until it gets nice and golden. Once done, set it aside.
  • Now, onto the egg-pertise! In a deep saucepan, bring some water to a steady simmer. Add in a splash of vinegar.
  • Break each egg into a separate small bowl. Swirl the water in the pan with a spoon to create a whirlpool, then gently pour each egg into the swirl. Poach for about 3 minutes until the whites are set but yolks remain runny. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  • While your eggs are poaching, it’s time for the velvety Hollandaise. In a heatproof bowl, beat egg yolks, lemon juice, and a splash of cold water. Whisk over a pan of simmering water until the mixture becomes pale, thick, and creamy. Slowly add in small amounts of melted butter, whisking constantly until the sauce is smooth.
  • Alrighty, time for assembly! Top each muffin half with a hearty slice of smoked salmon. Drizzle on a hint of Hollandaise then crown with a perfectly poached egg.
  • Can’t forget about the icing on the cake – a generous scoop of Hollandaise right on top! Sprinkle with a little salt, cracked black pepper, and fresh dill.
  • And there you have it – a stunning Norwegian Egg Benedict ready to tickle your taste buds. Enjoy this culinary adventure! Yum, am I right?
