To make two cheesy eggs Benedict sandwiches, begin by preparing the Hollandaise sauce. Melt the Cabot Salted Butter in a microwave safe dish or a saucepan over low heat until melted. Try to not let it boil. Place the egg yolks, lemon juice and cayenne pepper in a blender and blend for 20 to 30 seconds, until the egg yolks turn a light pale yellow. Remove the center of the blender lid and slowly pour in the melted butter, while blending on LOW speed. Keep the sauce in a warm place and use within 1 hour of making.


Next, make the grilled cheese. Fry the Canadian bacon in a large skillet until heated through and slightly browned. Remove from skillet and keep warm.


Then, butter the outsides of both English muffins and place in the skillet over medium heat. Top each half of the English muffins with ½ cup of the shredded Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar, then place the Canadian bacon on top of one of the halves. Cover the skillet with a lid and let the cheese melt.


Prepare the eggs by bringing a small pot filled with a few inches of water to a slight boil. Crack the eggs, one at a time, into a separate small dish and slowly slip into the water. Turn the heat off, cover and let sit for 4 minutes before using a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the water. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Remove the English muffins from the skillet once the cheese is melted and place on a serving plate. Top the Canadian bacon side of the grilled cheese with the poached egg and spoon about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the Hollandaise sauce over the top of the egg. Add a few dashes of Tabasco sauce, if desired. Top with the second half of the cheesy English muffin and enjoy!
