Ingredients

HOLLANDAISE SAUCE:

  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted

BRAID:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 large eggs divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 6 slices Canadian bacon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced chives divided
  • 1 teaspoon water

Instructions

MAKE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE:

  • In a blender, combine the first five Hollandaise sauce ingredients. Blend on high until combined. While blending, gradually add in the melted butter through the feed tube in a steady stream until combined. Set aside.

MAKE BRAID:

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Whisk five eggs, salt, and pepper; add to skillet. Cook and stir until barely set; stir in Hollandaise sauce.
    Mix the eggs with the hollandaise sauce.
  • On a lightly greased baking sheet, roll out the pastry into a 12x10-in. rectangle.
    Stretch the dough out into a rectangle.
  • Layer the Canadian bacon and egg mixture down the center of the rectangle; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chives.
    Layer the canadian bacon, egg mixture, and chives into the center of the dough.
  • On each long side, cut 1/2-in.-wide strips. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; pinch ends to seal.
    Cut the dough into strips.
  • Whisk remaining egg and water; brush over braid.
    Fold the pieces of dough over each other to form a braid.
  • Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and eggs are completely set. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.

  • Sprinkle with remaining chives.
    Sprinkle the braid with chopped chives, slice, and serve.
