Eggs Blackstone

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 English muffins
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 half-inch slices tomato
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 16 slices bacon - crisp-cooked and crumbled
  • Hollandaise sauce (recipe included)
Split muffins with a fork; toast. Poach eggs to desired doneness in simmering water.

While eggs cook, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; brown tomato slices on both sides in butter.

Place a tomato slice on each muffin half and sprinkle with some of the crumbled bacon. Place a poached egg on top and cover generously with Hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle lightly with remaining bacon and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

Hollandaise Sauce: Cut 1 cup of butter in 12 equal pieces. In top of double boiler combine 4 egg yolks, 3 Tablespoons lemon juice and 4 pieces of the butter; place over simmering water and stir rapidly with a wire whisk till butter melts. Add remaining butter 1 piece at a time, stirring till each piece melts before adding another. Add a dash of cayenne and serve immediately. (If sauce starts to thicken before it is served, add a small amount of boiling water while stirring.) Makes 1 and 1/2 cups.

Benson & Hedges presents Entertaining With Style: Recipes from Great American Restaurants About This Recipe:

This is a classic recipe from an out-of-print 1980 mini-cookbook called Benson & Hedges presents Entertaining With Style: Recipes from Great American Restaurants. The book credits this dish to a restaurant called Perry's in San Francisco, CA where it was part of their weekend brunch. It's suggested that this dish be served with Coffee Royale which is 2 Tablespoons brandy mixed with 1/2 cup coffee that's topped with whipped cream and grated orange peel.

The book describes Perry's in San Francisco like this: "When you visit Perry's and sit down at a table, your waiter directs your glance to the boldly painted menu on the wall. It's all part of the casual attitude and colorful decor of this popular San Francisco restaurant. There's a wide assortment of unbeatable favorites - lasagna, quiche, omelets, corned beef hash, skewered lamb, and much more. And who could pass up a cup of cappuccino - one of San Francisco's favorite coffee drinks."

A unique variation of Eggs Benedict featuring fried tomato slices and crumbled bacon.

This is awesome! I used to LOVE Eggs Blackstone at Perry's restaurant in San Fransisco in the 1980 time frame. So glad to find this recipe. I'm making it this morning for Valentine's Day 2016!

This recipe was in an old Joy of Cooking and I made it for Sunday Brunch occasionally for a restaurant I worked (over 30 years ago). The original recipe did not call for an English Muffin but my customers wanted something to soak up all that sauce and yoke so I served the muffins on the side. It was a popular item.

Great recipe. I am so happy that I found it. It has been a family favorite for over 30 years but haven't seen it in print before.
