Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Heinen’s Butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 4 ounces sliced smoked salmon
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 small fresh dill sprigs

Instructions:

  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.
  3. 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, and then transfer to a warm plate.
  4. 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.
By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
