Eggs Benedict Ingredients

Be sure to see the recipe card below for the full listing of ingredients, instructions, notes, and estimated nutritional information.

Canadian Bacon – Traditionally, Canadian bacon is used, but you can also use cooked ham or bacon in my recipe.

English Muffins – Split the muffins in half and butter before toasting in the oven.

Eggs – You’ll use six large eggs for this recipe.

Hollandaise Sauce – This easy sauce comes together in 5 minutes in the blender with just 5 ingredients.

Recipe Tips

  • Make as many or as few as you need with this updated method!
  • Use my easiest-ever method to cook eggs! There’s no need for the time-consuming simmering water to poach eggs. See my muffin tin method in the recipe instructions.
  • Make the easy hollandaise sauce in about 5 minutes! Whip it together while the eggs are in the oven.

How to Make Easy Eggs Benedict

  1. Cook the bacon – Place the Canadian bacon (or ham) onto a wire rack placed onto a baking sheet and bake until browned, about 15 minutes. (See How to Cook Bacon in the Oven if you wish to use standard bacon.)

2. Cook Eggs in the Oven – Rather than poaching eggs over a low simmer on the stovetop, I use my oven. Simply add water to each cup of a muffin pan, and then add your egg. Place your muffin pan filled with eggs into the oven during the last few minutes of the cooking time for your Canadian bacon. This little secret saves so much time, and the eggs turn out perfectly every time!

3. Toast the English Muffins – Put the buttered English Muffins into the bottom rack of the oven at the same time as the eggs.

4. Make Blender Hollandaise Sauce – Use my easy blender hollandaise sauce recipe to make the hollandaise sauce while the bacon, eggs, and toast are cooking. It will whip up easily in the blender in about 5 minutes.

5. Assemble the Eggs Benedict – Place toasted English muffin on a plate and top each with Canadian bacon. Use a silicone spatula to gently remove a poached egg from the muffin tin and drain each on a paper towel to remove any excess water before layering onto top of the bacon. Then drizzle the top of assembled eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce. Serve warm.

Make Eggs Benedict for a Crowd

This updated method is perfect for serving Eggs Benedict to larger crowds.

The recipe is for six people but can easily be adjusted to serve more.

If you look at the photo of my eggs in the muffin tin and the buttered English muffins on the baking sheet, you’ll likely notice that I even doubled my recipe when I made them! Even though an eggs benedict brunch or breakfast is so special, it can be so simple using my recipe!

It is so easy that I feel like I’m cheating when I serve it.

This Easy Eggs Benedict is delicious for breakfast or brunch and simple to make! Toasted English muffins are topped with Canadian bacon and poached eggs, then drizzled with my quick hollandaise sauce. It's ready in minutes without all the fuss!

Prep Time: 10 minutes minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes minutes

Servings: 6


  • 3 English Muffins, cut in half
  • 6 slices Canadian Bacon, or cooked bacon or ham slices
  • 6 large eggs
  • easy blender hollandaise sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400º F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

  • Place bacon on a fully rimmed baking sheet (edges on all four sides) that has been topped with a wire cooling rack. Bake until the meat has browned, about 15-20 minutes.

  • Add 2 tablespoons of water to each cup of the muffin pan. Crack an egg into each individual indention, taking care not to break the yolk of the egg. Place in the oven along with the bacon the last 9-10 minutes of cooking.

  • Place English muffins on another baking sheet. Spread with butter and place in oven at the same time as adding eggs.

  • As your bacon, eggs, and muffins are baking, prepare your hollandaise sauce. Pour into a serving container.

  • To assemble Eggs Benedict, place English Muffins on each plate, top with one slice of bacon. Using a silicon spatula, gently remove a poached egg from the muffin tin, draining on a thick kitchen towel before placing on top of the bacon.

  • Drizzle with hollandaise sauce and serve warm.
