  • Preheat your oven broiler. Start a pot of boiling water.

Hollandaise Sauce

  • Put egg yolks in a deep metal pan or metal bowl. Add lemon juice, whisk until frothy.
  • Place your pot (or bowl) over the pot of boiling water, and continue whisking. Do not let your pot dip into the water, or your yolks will scramble.
  • Slowly whisk in melted butter, and continue whisking your pot over the steaming water.
  • Add sea salt to taste, and a healthy sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

Poached Eggs

  • In a second, shallow pot, bring water to a simmer. Splash in some vinegar.
  • Crack an egg into a small bowl. Carefully slide the egg from the bowl into the simmering water. Repeat with the second egg.
  • Let your eggs simmer in the water for a couple of minutes, until they feel slightly firm. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towel. Season with fresh cracked pepper.

Sour Dough English Muffin.

  • Slice, and toast under pre-heated broiler

Lobster
