Despite the absence of the traditional hollandaise sauce, this smoked salmon eggs benedict is really, really good.

Directions

  1. Stir butter, dill, lemon zest, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until combined. Set aside.
  2. Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar and a pinch of salt. Crack an egg into a bowl then gently slip the egg into the water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs until whites are firm and yolks have thickened but are not hard, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, then transfer to a warm plate.
  3. Generously spread each English muffin half with dill butter. Top with a layer of smoked salmon, then 1 poached egg. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to taste. Garnish with a dill sprig and serve.

I love the combination of smoked salmon and dill and for their part, they did not disappoint. If I were to compare this to other “non-traditional” Eggs Benedict, it’s terrible and only worthy of one star. The reality is, it’s just an egg on buttered toast and there is no comparison to a true Benedict style dish. Non-traditional or not, to be classified as a Benedict it must include a sauce of some sort. I thought the seasoned butter spread would be enough to compensate for omitting the sauce, but I was wrong. Again, it’s just buttered toast. After several bites, hubby and I had enough. I quickly whipped up some Hollandaise sauce and turned this into a proper Eggs Benedict.
