Today, I was channeling my inner East Coaster, and went with Lobster Eggs Benedict!
This was my first time making lobster Eggs Benedict, and now that I know it exists, it’s going to be a common weekend brunch recipe in our house! Briny lobster, peppery arugula, rich organic free range eggs, dill, and hollandaise sauce is a match made in heaven!

- 1.5 – 2 TSBP Lemon Juice

- Preheat your oven broiler. Start a pot of boiling water.
- Put egg yolks in a deep metal pan or metal bowl. Add lemon juice, whisk until frothy.
