Eggs Benedict is a traditional American breakfast. Or brunch dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin. Topped with a poached egg, bacon or smoked salmon, and hollandaise sauce. The dish was first popularized in New York City. Many variations on the basic recipe are served. A classic dish, such a treat to have when eating out.

Delicious Lactose Free Eggs Benedict, try it!


  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 large free range eggs
  • 2 toasting muffin
  • 4 slices of ham (We love Serrano) or smoked salmon if you prefer
  • The Sauce
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 80 ml almond milk
  • 30 ml water
  • A pinch of Salt
  • Half a Teaspoon of Lemon Juice
  • A pinch of Cayenne Pepper
  • A pinch of Mustard Powder
  • Handful of chopped chives
  • A pinch of Paprika
  • 60 g dairy-free margarine (I used Flora Dairy Free)



Method (Sauce)


Using a bowl on top of a pan of boiling water, add all the ingredients except for the dairy free margarine. And whisk until well blended.


Cook on medium heat until it starts to thicken, making sure to stir often.


When it reaches a thickened consistency, remove from the heat and stir in the dairy free margarine. Make sure you add the dairy free margarine last, making sure to add it as is instead of melting it first, otherwise the sauce will most likely curdle.


It cools down very quickly, so keep warm until ready to use and continue to stir often.


Sprinkle a tiny bit of paprika on top of the sauce for prettiness!


Method (Putting It All Together)


Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add the vinegar. Break the eggs into 4 separate coffee cups. Slice the muffins in half and toast them.


Swirl the water briskly to form a vortex and slide in an egg. Cook for 2-3 mins.


Repeat with the other eggs, one at a time, re-swirling the water as you slide in the eggs. Spread Dairy Free Hollandaise sauce on each muffin, scrunch a slice of ham on top, then top with an egg. Spoon over the remaining Lactose Free Hollandaise Sauce, sprinkle with chives and serve at once.
