Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict, welcome to your new favorite breakfast. With a pinch of some of your favorite hot chile powders, this is a very special Benedict breakfast.
There are so many things to talk about with this post. A new method (for me) to make Hollandaise Sauce in a blender, a great new flavor for the Hollandaise Sauce, and a double-yolked egg when I went to make the Hollandaise Sauce.
I guess there’s really only one thing to talk about…The Hollandaise Sauce.
When making the sauce, I cracked open an egg and found a two yolks? Timeliness is critical when making Hollandaise, so no photo of the twins. Have you ever seen a two-yolked egg?

Throw in all the wonderful products available in their stores and it’s a culinary extravaganza. This recipe came through on an email and I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Let’s take a look.
The crab cakes were a cinch to make. I simply purchased them pre-made at Tony’s takeout dinner section and sautéed them until golden brown.

The new edition of Bon Appetit magazine featured a five-minute method for making Hollandaise Sauce in a blender. I really thought this sounded like a simplified solution to the otherwise finicky stove top production. And it worked like a charm.

The Verdict: DEElicious. What a wonderful combination of flavors. The blender Hollandaise turned out to be perfectly luscious and creamy in texture and really did look just like Bon Appetit’s photo.
Making the Hollandaise sauce a bit spicy was such a nice compliment to the crab cakes and with the creamy yolk from the poached egg…MUUUUWAAAA. An exquisite combination of flavors.
