Eggs Benedict is always my go to brunch choice when dining out. I am absolutely obsessed with it, and I love all the different varieties out there! Seriously…so many good ones.

Occasionally, I’ll make it at home for myself, and when I do, I use my homemade hollandaise sauce which helps to save a ton of extra fat and calories.


  1. Fill a small sauce pan with water and bring it to a boil. The size of the saucepan and the size of the eggs will determine how much water you should use. You need at least a couple of inches of water in your saucepan for the poached eggs to turn out right.
  2. Once the water has come to a boil, bring the heat down to a simmer. Now add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the water.
  3. Bring the cup with your egg as close to the water as possible and gently pour the egg into the simmering water. If you are using more than one egg you will want to wait at least 30 seconds for the egg to begin to set before adding a second one to the saucepan. This will help keep eggs from clumping together.
  4. Allow the egg to cook for approximately 3 minutes, If the egg starts to break up and spread around the pan, use a slotted spoon to guide it back to the center.
    When the poached egg reaches the desired level of done-ness remove it from the water with a slotted spoon.

In an effort to make my eggs benedict even more light and healthy, I created this Portobello Eggs Benedict Recipe that is just 4 Points (including the hollandaise!) and is absolutely delicious. Plus, it’s a great way to get those veggie servings in. Enjoy!
