Reworked eggs benedict

Around the Web: Reworking Eggs Benedict? Stashing it in the brunch file via Eater’s Manifesto.

Eater's manifesto

This is a straightforward fine ding recipe for breakfast that is not only ludicrously delicious, actually quite healthy, but which also gives two techniques which once you learn them will stay with you for ever; 1) how to poach a perfectly round egg and 2) how to make a hollandaise without any fuss. The method for poaching happily round eggs is the single most often asked question I get on my instagram feed – it seems people are unnecessarily struggling.
