Bacon Avocado Eggs Benedict Recipe

Written by Becky

There’s only a few ways to take a traditional Eggs Benedict recipe to the next level – bacon and avocado certainly do the trick!   Of course you could also make your own english muffins, which one of my favorite brunch restaurants does and I hope to try soon, but this time I opted for simplicity and found whole wheat english muffins at the store.  After making Benedict with avocado and bacon I don’t think we’ll ever go back to the ordinary way.

One of the tricky parts about eggs Benedict is making sure everything is hot at the same time. So I hope to help you here by giving you a little quick schedule to ensure perfect temperature when you serve this special breakfast.

1. Cook a few pieces of bacon in a skillet.  Once done pour out half the oil and leave the remaining to fry your egg in.

2. Grease some egg rings with a bit of the bacon grease on a paper towel. ( if you don’t have egg rings you can just fry the egg or poach as you would normally).

3. Make hollandaise sauce and set aside (or if there’s two of you, have the other person make the hollandaise while the eggs are cooking).

4. Crack eggs into egg rings onto while skillet is  on medium heat. Set timer for 5 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, slice the avocado.

6. Put english muffins in the toaster.

7. Once eggs are done (the whites on top should not be runny) assemble the Benedict – muffin, eggs, bacon, avocado, then hollandaise sauce.

My mother would make Eggs Benedict for us on special occasions, though she made it traditionally with canadian bacon and poached eggs.  I didn’t care for it much as a child but I definitely enjoy it as an adult and the addition of avocado and bacon doesn’t hurt either.  It’s now Josh’s favorite breakfast.

  1. Eggs benedit is my husband’s favorite too! I’ve never attempted to make it. I think I’ll try your version.

    Egg breakfast dishes are hard to get ready all at the same time. One of my favorite tricks is to have the eggs already cracked in separate mugs. Sure it dirties up extra dishes, but it works for us.

    And I LOVE our egg rings!

    • Love your tip!! I find it toi be a little stressful too but the more I make it the better I am at the time management of it all! Happy Valentine’s Day Becky!
