Adam’s Holidays Eggs – by Jesse & Kristi Bifulco Camden Windward House B&B

I made the mistake of making my 5 year old Eggs Benedict one morning. After that he would always ask for Holidays Eggs (mispronouncing Hollandaise), even when I had only 5 minutes left to leave to make it to Court on time, throwing an apron over my navy suit and silk tie:

Hollandaise: make it first whip four yolks until about 2-2 ½ times original volume. Keep warm, either in double boiler, or on a griddle about 175 degrees. Pour in slowly clarified or just melted butter about 1 cup give or take, a little at a time as you whisk. Finely chop a shallot put in a pan with cracked pepper corns white vinegar and reduce. I like to use apple cider, or wine, or champagne vinegar if I have it. After the yolks and butter begin to thicken, throw a little cold water on your reduced shallots, and pour that into the sauce with about 4 ounces of fresh lemon juice to taste. Now worry the judge is going to yell at you for being late to Court. Add sea salt to taste. Keep it at a warm temperature, or use it right away for safety sake. Now poach a couple of eggs. Depending on what we are making I may serve the eggs with sauce over it on top of a fried Canadian Bacon or maple smoked thick sliced bacon, and an English Muffin, or better yet, over a stack of silver dollar sized butter milk wild Maine blueberry pancakes. Worry once more about Court, quite, buy and bed and breakfast and move to Maine, … and voila! Enjoy your benedict, such as it is.
