The Best Brunch: Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict with Asparagus - easy poached eggs and blender hollandaise - from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach #brunch

I love Eggs Benedict and order it at brunch all the time. I never, ever made it at home. To me, it was stuffy and labor intensive. Not to mention I had to poach eggs, which is the equivalent of retaking the SAT’s (they were hard for me). And whisking up a Hollandaise sauce can be on the complicated side. Two products have made this seemingly elaborate brunch staple easy, easy, easy. The Hamilton Beach® Egg Cooker will poach eggs to perfection while you toast the english muffins. No boiling water, adding vinegar, swirling or stirring needed. To see everything the Egg Cooker can do, watch the video below. 

As for the sauce, our Single-Serve Blender allows you to put in all the ingredients, pulse a few times and have the creamy, buttery decadence that IS Hollandaise sauce. We served it with fruit-infused sparkling water and roasted asparagus. Trust me, try it at home (maybe for Mother’s Day?) and you will be amazed by the simplicity.

We used the Hamilton Beach Egg Cooker to perfectly poach the eggs. The Egg Cooker also prepares soft, medium or hard-boiled eggs.
