These beautiful sandwiches are nothing short of a masterpiece. They combine buttery toasted English muffins, Sargento® Sliced Baby Swiss Cheese, smoky Canadian bacon, asparagus spears and a perfectly poached egg and Hollandaise sauce on top for that classic eggs Benedict flavor.

Ingredients
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup clarified butter*
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 thin slices Canadian bacon
  • 2 sourdough English muffins, split
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 slices Sargento® Sliced Baby Swiss Cheese
  • 2 eggs, poached*
  • 4 spears asparagus, blanched
  • Dash paprika
Directions
  1. Preheat panini grill to high.
  2. Prepare Hollandaise sauce: In the top of a double boiler, whisk eggs. Gradually whisk in lemon juice. Place over simmering water (do not let boil). Add butter, 2 tablespoons at a time, whisking until smooth. Add salt and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Arrange bacon on bottom grill plate; close the top plate and cook until heated, 1-2 minutes. Remove and set aside. Wipe grill plates clean.
  4. Place muffins on a work surface and brush both the cut and crust sides with butter. Place in grill; close the top plate and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from grill and place bottom halves on two plates. Layer each with bacon, cheese, egg and asparagus. Drizzle with Hollandaise and sprinkle with paprika. Serve with top halves immediately.
