Let me start by saying, this has been dubbed “Better Than [insert word here] Lobster Benedict”. Here I take you step by step through making Lobster Benedict! Thank you to Omaha Steaks for providing these beautiful lobster tails.
Difficulty: Level 3 (you can do it)
Hands On Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes
Eggs benedict is one of my most favorite breakfasts (or lunches, or dinners) ever. Mostly because of the hollandaise sauce. Which is 90% butter, 5% egg, 3% lemon juice and 1% mustard. Really, all I care about is the 90% butter. Because butter makes the world go round.
- 4 lobster tail halves
- 2 tbsp butter – melted
- Salt, pepper and paprika to taste
- 1 cup butter melted
- 1 tsp brown mustard
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 egg
- 8 cups water
- 4 eggs
- 2 English muffins – halved
- Handful of fresh spinach (optional)
- Turn on broiler.
- Remove lobster meat and place on a tinfoil lined baking sheet.
- Top with melted butter, salt, pepper and paprika to taste.
- Broil for 4-5 minutes; until meat is opaque.
- In a food processor or blender, blend the egg, mustard and lemon juice.
- While the food processor is running, very slowly and in a steady stream add the melted butter.
- Blend an additional 5 seconds.
- Boil 8 cups of water in a large sauce pan.
- Swirl/stir the water with a large spoon.
- Carefully add the eggs one at a time.
- Turn down heat, cover with a lid and let the eggs sit in the water for 4 – 6 minutes.
- Remove from water and set aside.
- Toast 2 English muffins (4 halves)
- Top with 2-3 fresh leaves of spinach (optional)
- Place broiled lobster on top of spinach.
- Place poached egg on top of lobster.
- The hardest part about making eggs benedict is making it so everything is done at the same time. If you make eggs benedict more or less in this order, everything will be done (and still warm!) at the same time.
- 1. Bring water to a boil
- 2. Prep lobster
- 3. Make hollandaise sauce
- 4. Place eggs in water
- 5. Place lobster in broiler
- 6. Place English muffins in toaster
- 7. Remove lobster
