Muffin Tin Eggs

Method

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

6 or 12 eggs

Prepare your muffin tin. Spray with nonstick spray. Place 1 tbsp. water into each space. Then place one egg inside.  (If your pan is older, also add 1 tsp. vinegar to the water before placing the egg inside. This will help the egg to congeal or solidify while baking.

Bake 13-15 minutes. The yolk will be soft, but the white will be cooked through and solid. Remove from the oven and gently lift out of the pan with a slotted spoon.  Sprinkle with Kosher salt and pepper before serving.

Serve immediately.

 

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 10 tbsp. salted butter (if using unsalted butter, then add a pinch of salt to the sauce)

Method

Melt the butter gently, as not to separate the moisture out. Set aside to cool slightly.

Meanwhile in a blender, blend the eggs, cayenne, and lemon juice. Blend only until light and fluffy. Then while the blender is going, slowly add the butter. Blend for 1 minute. Use within an hour to avoid separation of the sauce.

  • How come I can’t access the eggs Benedict in a muffin tin recipe? Great segment, but I can’t remember what temp, how much water to add or how long to cook them.
