Caprese Benedict with Basil Hollandaise

basilholl4 English muffin halves

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced thinly

1 large heirloom tomato

8 large fresh basil leaves

1 tablespoon white vinegar

4 large eggs

Black pepper and kosher salt


1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 large basil leaves

¼ cup melted butter

kosher salt

black pepper


Put a shallow pot of water over medium heat to simmer and add the vinegar. While the water is simmering, make the Basil Hollandaise Sauce: Combine all of the ingredients in the blender and puree until very smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside. Toast the English muffins until crispy and top them with the mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Poach the eggs by swirling the simmering water hard with a spoon and then gently crack an egg into the center of the swirling water. Cook until the egg is half cooked through, but still runny in the center, about 3 minutes. Drain gently and top the benedict with the egg. Spoon the Basil Hollandaise over the egg. Serve hot.
