Eggs Benedict & Ham

How to make Eggs Benedict and Ham.

Ingredients: Serves 2

For the sauce:

  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 75g/3oz butter, melted
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

To complete:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 slices ham
  • toasted muffins to serve


  1. Make the sauce by placing the vinegar in a small pan and simmer until reduced by half.
  2. Place the egg yolks and vinegar in a small heatproof bowl and set it over a pan of gently simmering water.
  3. Whisk the yolks until the mixture is thick enough to leave a ribbon trail when the whisk is lifted.
  4. Gradually whisk in the butter until the mixture has thickened.
  5. Season to taste.
  6. Remove the bowl from the heat and set aside.
  7. To complete, pour 5cm/2in water in a large frying pan and bring to a gentle simmer.
  8. Carefully crack the eggs into the water and simmer for 2-3 mins or until the eggs are poached to your liking.
  9. Place 2 pieces of toasted muffins on each plate, top with the slices of ham, then place a poached egg on top.
  10. Spoon a little of the sauce over each and serve.
