Eggs Benedict might be the bougiest of egg meals. It also is arguably the best way to eat your eggs (let me know if you want to talk about it because I can probably convince you). I’ve seen a lot of variation from avocado eggs benny to crab cakes benedict.

There might be no wrong answers to eggs benedict variations (disclaimer: this is probably not true), but I’ve come to share my own twist that I will most likely make until I die. In fact, if you’ve been in my life long enough, I’ve probably made you eat these before. If not, maybe you should ask me to have breakfast sometime.

  • Step 2

    Crack the eggs into a ramekin and pour into the water as close as possible without burning yourself. Some people like to swirl the egg after they place it in the water. Do you.

  • Step 5

    When your eggs are perfectly poached, this should take about 5-6 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon or mesh skimmer and place on top of the prosciutto.

    Season with salt and pepper to taste. I prefer to immediately cut the egg open: ideal yolk porn.
