Steak and Eggs Benedict with Asparagus in Bearnaise Sauce

Steak and Eggs Benedict with Asparagus in Bearnaise Sauce
Father's Day is this weekend and what better way to show him how much you care than to cook something special for him. Dads might not be all that big on breakfast in bed but you cannot go wrong making him a nice breakfast or brunch. Some dads aren't into the whole quiche or even eggs benedict breakfast thing so when I came across the idea for this steak and eggs benedict on Nibble Me This I knew that I had found an eggs benedict that even dad would love! Steak and eggs is a classic breakfast combo, asparagus goes well with steak and bearnaise sauce goes phenomenally well with both steak and asparagus so this dish is a hit on every front!

Although eggs benedict is more involved than a lot of breakfast recipes, it is actually pretty easy to make. To lighten the load in the morning, grill up an extra steak for dinner the night before and set it aside in the fridge for breakfast the next day. All that is left to do is toast the english muffins, steam the asparagus, make the bearnaise sauce and poach the eggs. To make things even easier I like to use a simple blender version of the bearnaise sauce that only takes a few minutes to make which means that the hardest part of this recipe is poaching the eggs which is easy peasy.

Dad is sure to appreciate this steak and eggs benedict with asparagus in bearnaise sauce for breakfast on Father's Day!

This looks awesome. Never tried to make a bearnasise sauce before. This totally looks approachable but still elegant. Steak on Fathers Day = perfection :) Thanks for posting it.

Made this last night with leftover steak. Tasted great except for the blender hollandaise. I tried to halve the recipe, but even if I hadn't, the eggs were below the blender blades. Even by adding all the ingredients it barely got stirred. I understand the failure is in the design of the blender, but it was disappointing.
