Smoked Salmon Dill Eggs Benedict


1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons fresh dill
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 pinch cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 pinch salt
4 eggs
1-2 large tomatoes, sliced
4 ounces sliced smoked salmon
1 pinch cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
4 small fresh dill sprigs

Stir butter, dill, lemon zest, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until combined. Set aside.

Slice the tomatoes (about 1/4-1/2 inch thick) and set aside. Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar and a pinch of salt. Crack an egg into a bowl then gently slip the egg into the water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs until whites are firm and yolks have thickened but are not hard, 4 to 6 minutes. While eggs are cooking, spoon some of the dill butter onto a tomato slice and add a slice of smoked salmon.

Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water. Place egg on top of salmon. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to taste. Add a dill sprig so it looks pretty and serve.

I also added a side of bacon and an avocado.
