Make a blender Hollandaise Sauce for this easy recipe.

My Eggs Benedict Recipe is one of the easiest you’ll find, thanks to a quick blender Hollandaise sauce!

Whenever we go out to breakfast, one of us almost always orders Eggs Benedict. It’s just one of those classic and hearty dishes that will really stick with you throughout the day, especially when you’re traveling.

To poach the eggs, start with very fresh eggs for best results. Heat about 2 inches of water in a deep saucepan to a gentle simmer and stir in 1 tablespoon of cider or white wine vinegar to help the eggs keep their shape. Break eggs close to the simmering water. Immediately and gently push the whites over the yolk with a wooden spoon for 2-3 seconds, then proceed with the other eggs. After 4 minutes, remove the first egg with a slotted spoon; the white should be set and the yolk should still be soft. You can also buy single egg poachers for a few dollars at many supermarkets.
