Make Easter Brunch special with Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict! Top a puff pastry with smoked salmon, a poached egg, and homemade hollandaise sauce.
My kids laugh at me. Every time we go out to breakfast, I order the same thing. Eggs Benedict. If it’s on the menu, I’m having it. Then I’m in a food coma for a few hours afterward no matter how much coffee I drink. It’s worth it.
Eggs Benedict is my favorite breakfast dish. Smooth and tangy hollandaise sauce is the best part. It pairs so wonderfully with the poached egg and salty ham. The Machine Shed restaurant in Clive, Iowa serves Eggs Benedict on a homemade sourdough English muffin. Oh my!!
Then one day I’m visiting other blogs through the Thursday Favorite Things link party. Kit at The Kittchen has an amazing recipe for Puff Pastry Breakfast Tarts. O0000…I love puff pastry. I like to use it on top of Chicken Pot Pie. Her dish looks amazing! It’s a puff pastry topped with pesto, prosciutto, asparagus, manchego cheese, and an egg. I comment that smoked salmon would be wonderful to use as well. Kit agrees!
Kit’s Puff Pastry Breakfast Tarts inspired my Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. I shared my creation with her and am thrilled to say she loves it! What a compliment from a veteran food blogger! Thank you, Kit!

How to Make Homemade Hollandaise Sauce
You guys, there’s nothing like homemade hollandaise sauce. It isn’t difficult at all to make. It’s so rich and tangy! My hollandaise sauce is very yellow because I have my own laying hens. The yolks in their eggs are a beautiful, deep yellow.
If you’re ever considering getting laying hens, I recommend Black Astralorpes. They’re docile and lay lots of medium-sized eggs. Even if you live in town, check with your city council. Many towns are now allowing people to keep a certain number of hens as long as they keep no roosters.
