Eggs Benedict is one of my favorite brunch foods. It feels fancy, but they aren’t terribly complicated to make. Eggs Benedict is one of those foods that we make for special occasions – birthdays, Mother’s Day, Easter etc.
 
Eggs Benedict is perfect for company, but making one poached egg at a time is time consuming and isn’t the best option for feeding a group of people.
 
Today, I’m sharing an Easy Eggs Benedict recipe that would be perfect for an Spring or Easter brunch with family and friends!
 
This poached egg recipe in the oven is great for cooking several eggs at the same time. Perfect for feeding a crowd!

What You Need to Make Eggs Benedict:

 
We know what basic Eggs Benedict consists of:
English muffins, halved
Canadian bacon
eggs, poached – see below for an easy recipe
hollandaise sauce – see my mock recipe below
chives (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350.

Spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray.

Add 1 tbsp water to each muffin tin and crack egg directly into each hole.

Bake for 10 minutes.
 
Remove egg with slotted spoon and serve immediately.

For my Canadian bacon, I break out my electric skillet. I can quickly heat up all the Canadian bacon at once and it only takes a few minutes.
 
And now for that luxurious Hollandaise Sauce.

Easy Mock Hollandaise Sauce

1.5 lemons, juiced

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

dash of hot sauce

dash of salt

1 tablespoon mustard, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground paprika

hollandaise sauce

In a small saucepan, whisk together your ingredients over low heat until heated through. Spoon over eggs. 
 
The Hollandaise Sauce makes enough for about 12 eggs Benedict halves.

I like to serve my Eggs Benedict with a selection of fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee or tea of course!
 
You can serve wedges of lemon on the side for those who like more lemon on their Eggs Benedict. Easy brunch done!

Thanks for this post. Eggs Benedict is my favorite brunch food too but I never attempted to make it at home because I don't like to poach eggs--all that chasing the white around the water in the pan and trying to keep it together is too much for me. But I am totally going to try making them in the oven!

Girl, I've never made a poached egg in my life because I thought I'd screw it up. LOVE this tip about putting them in the oven! On a completely unrelated note to food, your photos are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

I have never made poached eggs in the oven before! That would definitely be easier than the batches I do. My husband LOVES Eggs Benedict.
