  • Ready In

  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.
