Eggs Benedict is a classic American breakfast or brunch dish that typically consists of poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and hollandaise sauce on an English muffin. This vegan version replaces the eggs and bacon with tofu and veggie bacon, making it a great option for those following a plant-based diet.



How to prepare

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

  4. Arrange the tofu slices in a 6 x 9 baking dish and pour the oil and vinegar mixture over them.
  5. Marinate the tofu for 15-30 minutes, making sure to turn it over occasionally to ensure each side gets marinated.
  6. Bake the tofu for 20 minutes or until it turns crispy and brown. If it's not browning well, you can remove any excess liquid for the last few minutes of baking.
  7. To prepare the sauce, whisk together the yeast, flour, and salt.

How did I get this recipe?

I recall the moment I first laid eyes on this recipe for Eggs Benedict Forever. It was a warm summer day, the sun was shining brightly through the kitchen window, and the smell of freshly brewed coffee filled the air. I was flipping through an old cookbook that had been passed down to me from my mother, looking for inspiration for a new dish to try.

As I turned the pages, a faded yellowed piece of paper fell out from between the pages. It was a handwritten recipe for Eggs Benedict Forever, with detailed instructions on how to make the perfect hollandaise sauce, poached eggs, and toasted English muffins. The recipe had been scribbled in elegant cursive handwriting, and I could tell that it was a treasured family secret.

I knew that Eggs Benedict was a classic brunch dish, but I had never tried making it myself. Intrigued by the recipe, I decided to give it a try. I gathered all the ingredients listed on the paper, and set to work in the kitchen, following the instructions carefully.

First, I started by making the hollandaise sauce. I whisked together egg yolks, lemon juice, and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a double boiler over low heat, until the mixture thickened and became creamy. The aroma of butter and eggs filled the kitchen, and I knew I was on the right track.

Next, I poached the eggs in simmering water with a splash of vinegar, until the whites were set but the yolks remained runny. Poaching eggs had always been a bit tricky for me, but I was determined to get it right this time. With a gentle touch, I carefully removed the eggs from the water and placed them on a paper towel to drain.

While the eggs were poaching, I toasted the English muffins until they were golden brown and crispy. I had always loved the texture of toasted English muffins, and I knew they would be the perfect base for the Eggs Benedict.

Finally, it was time to assemble the dish. I placed a toasted English muffin on a plate, topped it with a slice of crispy bacon, a poached egg, and a generous spoonful of hollandaise sauce. The combination of flavors and textures was heavenly, and I knew that I had stumbled upon something truly special.

As I took my first bite of Eggs Benedict Forever, I was transported back to that warm summer day in my kitchen, where I had discovered this delicious recipe. The creamy hollandaise sauce, the perfectly poached egg, and the crispy English muffin all came together in perfect harmony, creating a dish that was both comforting and indulgent.

From that day on, Eggs Benedict Forever became a staple in my cooking repertoire. I would make it for special occasions, brunches with friends, or simply when I wanted to treat myself to a delicious meal. Each time I made it, I would think back to that faded yellowed piece of paper, and the moment when I first learned how to make this timeless dish.

Now, as I pass on this recipe to you, my dear grandchild, I hope that you will enjoy making Eggs Benedict Forever as much as I have. May it bring you joy, comfort, and memories of the loved ones who have shared this dish with you. And may you always remember the moment when you first laid eyes on this recipe, and the magic that unfolded in your kitchen as you brought it to life.
