Ingredients:  
4 egg yolks
3 Tbs lemon juice
1 pinch ground white pepper
⅛ tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tb water
1 C butter, melted
tsp salt
8 eggs
1 tsp distilled white vinegar
8 strips Canadian-style bacon
4 English muffins, split
2 Tbs butter, softened

Directions:
Directions:
To make hollandaise: Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water. Make sure that water does not
touch the top pan. Bring water to a gentle simmer.
In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce,
and 1 tablespoon water.
Add the melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 or 2 Tbs at a time while whisking yolks constantly. If
hollandaise begins to get too thick, add a tsp or two of hot water. Continue whisking until all butter is
incorporated.
Whisk in salt, then remove from heat. Place a lid on pan to keep sauce warm.
Preheat oven on broiler setting.
To poach eggs: fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add
vinegar.
Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Yolks should still be
soft in center. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on a warm plate
While eggs are poaching, brown the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and toast the
English muffins on a baking sheet under the broiler.
Spread toasted muffins with softened butter, and top each one with a slice of bacon, followed by one
poached egg.
Place 2 muffins on each plate and drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve
immediately.
