Ingredients for Delicious Instant Pot Eggs Benedict

  • Eggs: Essential for poaching, they provide a rich, creamy yolk that perfectly complements the other ingredients in this dish.
  • English muffins: Serve as the base, their nooks and crannies soaking up the hollandaise sauce and adding a delightful crunch.
  • Canadian bacon: Adds a savory, smoky flavor that pairs well with the eggs and hollandaise, creating a classic eggs benedict taste.
  • Water: Used for creating steam in the instant pot to cook the eggs perfectly without needing to boil them.
  • White vinegar: Helps the egg whites coagulate quickly when poaching, ensuring a neat and tidy poached egg presentation.
  • Hollandaise sauce: The crowning glory, its creamy, buttery richness ties all the elements together, adding a decadent finish to the dish.
  • Chives: A fresh and mild onion flavor that adds a pop of color and a subtle hint of freshness to the dish.

Tips for Preparing Instant Pot Eggs Benedict in Advance

Make Ahead Instructions

  • Poach the eggs as directed and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • Toast the English muffins and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Cook the Canadian bacon and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Prepare the hollandaise sauce and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently before serving.

Did you know that you can make a lighter version of hollandaise sauce by using Greek yogurt instead of butter? It's a healthier twist that still packs a creamy and tangy flavor!
