Quick and Easy
English Muffins


  • 6 Dempster’s® English Muffins (White), split and toasted
  • 1 pkg (56 g) Hollandaise Dry Sauce Mix
  • Butter
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder
  • 12 eggs, poached
  • 2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) salsa
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped fresh cilantro


Poached Eggs:

  1. To poach eggs, fill a saucepan with enough water to come 3 inches (8 cm) upside of the pan; stir in 2 tbsp (30 mL) white vinegar and bring to simmer over medium heat.
  2. Vigorously stir the water to create a vortex.
  3. Break 1 egg (cold) into a small dish or saucer.
  4. Holding the dish just above simmering water, slip the egg into the water.
  5. Repeat with remaining eggs.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  7. Cook eggs, in barely simmering water, for 3 to 4 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are cooked as desired.
  8. Remove eggs with slotted spoon; place on paper towel–lined plate to drain.


  1. Prepare hollandaise according to package directions, adding butter as required.
  2. Stir in chili powder.
  3. Spread 1/2 tsp (2 mL) butter over each toasted English muffin half.
  4. Top each muffin half with a few avocado slices, a dollop of salsa and a poached egg.
  5. Spoon chili hollandaise over top.
  6. Garnish with cilantro.

Tips: Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese over top before serving if desired.
