  • 2 yolks from large eggs
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 pinch paprika


  • 1 egg
  • hollandaise sauce
  • ham steak or a few thin ham slices
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of paprika


Hollandaise Sauce

  • Melt stick of butter in a pan or microwave
  • Place all other ingredients in your blender and pulse a couple of times until the ingredients are mixed
  • Using the little hole on the top of your blender (this is totally what it’s for!) slowly pour the butter while you have your blender on low until fully incorporated, but no more than a minute.
  • Use immediately. I tend to discard any extras, as it is a recipe made of raw egg yolk.

Ham Benedict

  • Fill a saucepan about 2-3″ with water, enough water so you’ll be able to cover eggs completely. Turn heat on high and bring to a low boil.
  • While the water is boiling, fry ham steaks in butter in a small pan to brown a bit on each side, about 90 seconds per side.
  • When water comes to a low boil, crack your egg(s) and gently ease them one by one into the pan (I use my perforated spoon to do the job).
  • Place cover over pan and turn off heat. Allow egg to cook in the pan for 5 minutes. The recipe is best (at least in my opinion) with a runny egg, so you’ll want to experiment with times to get you to the desired doneness. I find five minutes to be just about right, especially if I have multiple eggs in the pan, maybe slightly less time for just one egg.
  • Use the spoon to remove your egg. Drain onto paper towel to remove any excess water.
  • Place ham steak on plate, add egg and top with hollandaise.
  • Garnish Ham Benedict with chopped parsley, paprika, salt and pepper. Enjoy!
