  2. Place a pot, fill a third of the way, on the stove on low heat. 
  3. Place the heatproof bowl on top of the pot on the stove.
  4. Whisk continuously until eggs become ribbony and fluffy. 
  5. Remove from pot and begin adding in melted butter while whisking. 
  6. Alternate from heat on and off to avoid scrambling. 
  7. Once the sauce is thick, add tarragon and season with salt, smoked pepper, and lemon juice to taste. 
  8. Hold in a warm place until ready to serve.

Poached egg 

  1. Bring a pot with water salt and vinegar to a soft boil. Not rolling! 
  2. Crack egg into small bowl or cup. 
  3. Form a vortex in the pot of water and drop an egg in the center slowly. Slooooowly. (See Matt’s Youtube video above for inspiration.) 
  4. Let cook for about two minutes or until desired doneness.  

Serving: 

Smother those poached eggs with hollandaise. Finish with flake salt. 

Serve biscuits with your choice of bacon…. or not!
