Taste and TextureButtery, Crisp, Rich
- 8 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
- 4 English muffins
- Butter, for spreading
- 1 cup warm Hollandaise Sauce
Fill a large frying pan with water to a depth of 2 inches (5 cm). Add the vinegar and bring to a simmer over medium heat. When tiny bubbles appear at the bottom of the pan, carefully crack 4 eggs, one by one, into each pan.
Cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let stand for exactly 6 minutes. Remove the eggs, using a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.
Meanwhile, split each muffin in half and toast.
Butter each muffin half and place 2 on each serving plate. Top each half with a poached egg and spoon the hollandaise over the top.
