Ontario’s Finest Eggs Benedict with Porketta


  • 8 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 English muffins, halved and toasted
  • 16 asparagus spears, blanched and halved
  • 8 pieces, thinly sliced Halenda’s Ontario porketta
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped chives


  1. Pour enough water into a shallow saucepan to come 2 inches (5 cm) up side; bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Break each egg into a small dish; gently slip into water. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Remove with slotted spoon and drain well; keep warm on a towel-lined platter.
  2. In small heavy saucepan, whisk together yolk, water and pepper; cook, whisking constantly, over medium low heat for about 5 minutes or until pale and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Whisk in butter and lemon.
  3. Arrange English muffins, cut sides up, on four warm plates. Top each muffin with 4 pieces of asparagus, one slice of the porketta and one poached egg. Spoon warm hollandaise sauce over top and sprinkle with chives. Serve immediately with a fresh green salad and warm roasted potatoes.
  4. Makes 4 servings.
  5.
