Smoked Salmon and Dill Eggs Benedict

Plays: 16467

In this video, you’ll see how to make lower-calorie smoked salmon eggs Benedict. This is a simple eggs Benedict recipe with fewer calories than the typical hollandaise sauce-smothered eggs Benedict. What’s the secret? Chef John replaces high-calorie hollandaise sauce with compound butter, which is essentially room-temperature butter mixed here with fresh dill, lemon zest, and some seasonings. Spread a little compound butter over your toasted English muffin, then layer with smoked salmon and poached eggs. Is this diet food? No, it’s still rich, delicious, and uses tasty butter; but it’s also not as highly caloric as eggs Benedict slathered in hollandaise sauce. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Smoked Salmon and Dill Eggs Benedict.

Excellent alternative to eggs benedict. Easy to make actually simple. This is the new Christmas morning breakfast for our house. I put just a touch of the butter on the egg when served too.
