      RECIPE TITLE "San Francisco-Style Eggs Benedict Recipe"

    In this rendition of Eggs Benedict, poached eggs top fresh asparagus and a pancetta waffle. However, tradition isn't totally abandoned. Lemon hollandaise smothers it all. Look for Meyer lemons to enhance the sauce further.

    Wine Suggestion by Kris Harriman: Iron Horse Vrais Amis Sparkling Wine


    For the Waffles:
    4 slices pancetta or bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 cup cake flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup heavy cream
    2 eggs at room temperature

    For the Sauce:
    3 egg yolks at room temperature
    Salt and ground white pepper to taste
    1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter
    2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, preferably Meyer lemon
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, preferably Meyer lemon
    1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives

    For the Asparagus:
    12 asparagus stalks, trimmed

    For the Eggs:
    1 tablespoon Chardonnay or white wine vinegar
    8 eggs


    In a small skillet, cook the pancetta or bacon over medium high heat until lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Preheat a waffle iron. In a blender or food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Pulse quickly to blend. Add the pancetta or bacon, cream, and eggs and process for 6 seconds. Scrape the sides of the container. Pulse for 3 seconds to fully mix.

    Pour 1/2 cup of the batter onto the hot waffle iron and cook for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Keep warm in a low oven. Repeat to cook the remaining batter. (To make ahead, let the waffles cool, then wrap in plastic wrap, place in a freezer bag, and freeze. To thaw, place in the toaster or 350 degree F oven and cook until heated through.)

    In a blender or food processor, combine the egg yolks, salt, and pepper and process for 10 seconds. In a small saucepan, melt the butter until it foams. With the machine running, pour the melted butter in a thin stream into the blender or processor. Add the zest and lemon juice and pulse to incorporate. Pour the sauce into a bowl and place over a pan filled with 2 inches of hot water to keep the sauce warm. Stir in the chives just before serving. (You can also keep the hollandaise warm in a Thermos.)

    Cook the asparagus in a skillet of salted boiling water for 3 minutes, or until easily pierced with a knife. Drain and reserve.

    Bring a large skillet of water to a boil. Add the vinegar and reduce heat to a simmer. Break the eggs, one at a time, into a saucer and slide them into the water. With a spoon, gently bring the egg white over the center of each yolk to keep the whites intact. Cook for 4 minutes for soft-centered yolks. With a slotted spoon, transfter the eggs to a clean dish towel. (To make the eggs ahead of time: Cook the eggs for 3 minutes. Place them in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Before serving, cook the poached eggs in simmering water for 1 minute to reheat.)

    Place a hot waffle on each of 4 warm plates and top with 3 asparagus stalks, 1 poached egg, and some hollandaise.

    Thomas Keller, The French Laundry Restaurant: Add a few tablespoons of white vinegar to the poaching water. The vinegar will keep the egg whites from falling apart in the water and keep the egg whole. You won't be able to taste the vinegar.
