  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) coarse salt

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard

  • Pinch smoked paprika


  1. Toss cherry, yellow, Roma and sun-dried tomatoes with olive oil and salt.
  2. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. In small saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat until melted and bubbling. Combine egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard in blender; purée until smooth.

  5. Season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

  7. Top each with poached egg and Hollandaise Sauce.

Tips: To poach eggs, fill saucepan with enough water to come 3 inches (15 cm) up side. Heat until water simmers gently; stir in 1 tsp (5 mL) vinegar. Break each egg into small dish; holding dish just above simmering water, slip each egg into water. Cook, in barely simmering water, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the white is set and yolk is cooked to desired doneness. Remove eggs with slotted spoon; drain well on paper towel.
