My Husband’s Famous Eggs Benny

Some of you girls go wild over your husbands steaks, pancakes, or when he picks up pizza.  In our family (consisting of the two of us), it’s his eggs benny. Tart and delicious!

Here’s how he does it:

  • Poach several eggs — spray a pan with cooking spray, fill it with water and a little vinegar, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, break an egg into a measuring cup and ease it into the water.

  • Meanwhile, make the eggs benny sauce — bring a pot of water to a boil, in a smaller pot on top (hold it, do not let it hi the boiling water directly) add 3 egg yolks, 1/4 cup butter (cut into three pieces and added one at a time, stirring constantly with a spatula) 1 Tbsp water, and 2 Tbsp lemon juice. Also, add salt to taste if you are using unsalted butter.
  • Cook whatever else you want on your eggs benny — ham, fried tomatoes, fried mushrooms (try portobello!), bacon, etc.
  • Toast an english muffin, layer everything on top, and sprinkle with peprika.
