Eggs Benedict 
From the Kitchen of:
Sandro Jube and Lorenzo Pelayo of Honolulu Cafe

    1 English muffin
    2 slices baked ham
    2 slices smoked turkey
    2 whole eggs for poaching
    slices of potato and bell pepper for garnishing

    Hollandaise Sauce
    3 egg yolks
    1/4 lb. clarified butter
    1/2 c. white wine
    1 bay leaf
    4 pcs. peppercorn
    1 Tbs. white vinegar
    1 Tbs. lemon juice
    salt & pepper to taste

    Hollandaise Sauce:  Stir egg yolks and lemon juice vigorously in medium saucepan over very low heat.  Add butter and white wine and stir constantly with whisk, until melted.  Add remaining ingredients and continue vigorous stirring until all butter is melted and sauce is thickened (be sure butter melts slowly so eggs have time to cook and thicken sauce without curdling).  Keep warm.

    Benedict:  Split and toast English muffin halves.  Cook ham and turkey slices until lightly browned and place them on each English muffin half.  Prepare poached eggs (add white vinegar to boiling water to hold egg together when poaching).  Top each English muffin half with one poached egg.  Spoon warm sauce over eggs.  Garnish with slices of potato and bell peppers.
