POG Eggs Benedict
Wow your friends and family with this simple & delicious brekky recipe!
As seen on Twitch's POG Picks Down Under 2021.
1 cup butter, melted
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
1 tbsp cold water
salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 tsp vinegar
4 large eggs
2-4 croissants or sliced bread, lightly toasted
4 -8 slices bacon
spinach, fresh or wilted
Combine the egg yolks and cold water in a heat-proof mixing bowl and whisk for 1 to 2 minutes, until the mixture is light and foamy. Whisk in a little of the lemon juice.
Place the bowl directly on top of a saucepan of simmering water. Do not allow the water to come in contact with the bowl. Whisk the eggs for 1-2 mins until they're slightly thickened.
Slowly trickle the melted butter while whisking constantly. The slower the better. You can remove the bowl from the heat.
After you've added all the butter, season to taste with salt, pepper and a touch of lemon juice if necessary.
The finished sauce will have a smooth, firm consistency. If it's too thick, you can adjust by whisking in a little warm water.
Half fill a large saucepan with water and add 1-2 tbsp vinegar. When it starts to boil, lower temp to a simmer. Gently crack eggs into pan and gently swirl water. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until soft to touch. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.
Bring it together
