Easy Eggs Benedict

I posted about making Eggs Benedict quite a while ago.  I don't make it often because it is a pain in the you know what to make.  It is messy and somewhat time-consuming.  Well, today I found some steps to simplify the process.  I was talking about The Mad Genius who gives food tips on Food & Wine Magazine's website last night and when I searched for the video he made for shelling eggs with a spoon, I found another of his videos showing how to easily poach eggs.  I tried it this morning and it worked fairly well.  I also found a great tip about using an immersion blender to make the blender Hollandaise sauce!  I hadn't thought of that myself.  It is much better to use an immersion blender for this process rather than using my big "Ninja" blender because it makes a mess and you lose half the sauce to the sides and bottom of the blender.  I had always worried that there wasn't even enough sauce in the blender to get it properly blended.  All this worry goes away just by using an immersion blender.  The rest of the process of making the Eggs Benedict is really a snap.  Just fry up some Canadian bacon and toast a few English muffins!
