Prepare the Hollandaise sauce: In the top of a double boiler combine the egg yolks, water, lemon juice, pepper, and salt. Add 1 piece of the butter and place over boiling water. Cook, stirring, until the butter melts and the sauce begins to thicken. Add the rest of the butter and continue stirring until it thickens.

    I have always loved Eggs Benedict – though I never really equated the name with
    Benedict Arnold.
