Who doesn’t love fall brunches? Mimosas. Bloody Marys. Brunch Burgers. French toast. All so easy to make that you don’t have to worry about inviting your friends over to cook for them.
Eggs Benedict on the other hand, has always been on a pedestal for me. That unattainable dish I was scared to attempt on a time crunch. Just too much that could go wrong. Well, this Chef Steps recipe tout’d itself as one you couldn’t mess up. So I knew what I had to do. Because if I could do it. You all certainly could!

🔪Prep Time 15 minutes
🛁Sous Vide Time 2 hour @147F/64C
🍳 Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
- 1 shallot
- 2oz Champagne Vinegar
- 2oz water
- 6oz Butter
- 6 large Egg yolks
- Juice of a 1/2 Lemon
- salt to taste
- 2 English Muffins
- 4 large eggs
- Ham or favorite benny meat
Dice your shallot and add it to a pot with the Champagne vinegar. Reduce on high heat by half. Strain remaining liquid into Hollandaise bag.
Combine rest of Hollandaise ingredients into your Sous Vide bag of choice. Then take the eggs meant for the Benedict and place them in a bag of their own. (Just keeps them from going around all over the container)
Set your Sous Vide cooker to 147F/64C and place your bags into your Sous Vide Container
Before you pull out your eggs and hollandaise, prep your english muffins. You could use a toaster. but I don’t have one.
So I buttered my english muffins and browned them in a pan.
When you pull your hollandaise it certainly doesn’t look like it. But we’ll take care of that in a min. Add all the contents into a processor.
Blend thoroughly. And your hollandaise is ready. So simple. So delicious.
Now. We assemble. Ham on first.
Crack your SV eggs next.
Cover with Hollandaise. And your Sous Vide Eggs Benedict is ready to wow your friends.
Remember. Be generous with those portions! You like the people you invited over after all right? Right?!
Insanely Good. Thats it. No other way to say it. I was floored by how good this came out, versus how simple it was to make. I didn’t even break a sweat. I highly recommend giving this one a go. If I can do it, you can certainly knock this one out of the park!

Thanks, James. Putting this one on the short list.
No problem. And I wish I had a short list 🙁 I want to make everything
Me, too! So many good things to make. Sometimes I let an upcoming holiday or gathering prompt moving things up the list. I’m thinking this recipe will be perfect for Thanksgiving weekend.
Hi, this looks delicious and simple to make, however, I don’t see how long you keep it in the bath?
