This IHOP Eggs Benedict Recipe has Canadian style bacon on an English muffin, topped with rich Hollandaise sauce. Make it today.
We don’t go out to restaurants very often but I love making our favorite copycat recipes. And, since IHOP is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants. I’ve made several IHOP copycat recipes in the past. Have you had a chance to make these IHOP Chocolate Chip Pancakes yet? Or, this IHOP Omelette Recipe is definitely one of my favorites.
IHOP Eggs Benedict Recipe
This IHOP Eggs Benedict recipe English Muffins as the base instead of toast which is typically used when making eggs benedict.
On top of the English muffins are rounds of Canadian bacon topped by poached eggs and a rich Hollandaise sauce. Typically, this breakfast copycat would be served with a side of hashbrowns. So, if you want the true experience, make sure you make a batch.
According to the IHOP menu, the IHOP Eggs Benedict Recipe has a little over 1000 calories. So, this is not diet food. But, if you are craving your favorite breakfast but don’t want to head to the restaurant, why not make your own.
Most of the fat and calories in the IHOP Eggs Benedict Recipe come from the Hollandaise sauce. If you use whole wheat English muffins instead of regular, you will be adding a bit more fiber. Canadian bacon is lower in fat than regular bacon. And, poached eggs are a better option than fried.
One of the easiest things to do is to simply watch how much Hollandaise sauce you put on top. Or, have one half instead of the whole and enjoy a side fruit salad with it.

Frequently asked questions
What is eggs benedict florentine?
IHOP Eggs Benedict is not served Florentine style. But, if you want to, you can add fresh spinach on top of the bacon and serve it on toasted sourdough bread. Some people also add a slice of fresh tomato.
What do you add on top of eggs benedict?
IHOP Eggs Benedict normally just has salt and pepper on top. But, I like to use fresh chives. You can do whichever one you want or try something different.
Eggs benedict variations
There are many different ways you can enjoy eggs benedict. A few options to use instead of English muffins are toast, biscuits, flatbread, a croissant, or even onion rings. Instead of Canadian bacon, you can use ham, traditional bacon, smoked salmon, tuna fish, chorizo, or a slice of avocado.
And, of course, you can always add more vegetables. Asparagus, tomato, spinach, jalapenos, or avocado are great choices.
- A large pot of water to poach eggs or an egg poacher for the microwave
How can I store leftovers?
I would recommend that you make only what you know you will eat when making IHOP Eggs Benedict. If you do have leftovers, you can try removing the English muffin and reheating the rest in the microwave. But, I am sure that it won’t be as good as when it’s first made.

- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoons & 2 1/4 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 pinch ground pepper
- 1/8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp water
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 tsp distilled white vinegar
- 4 strips Canadian style bacon
- 2 English muffins, split

- To make Hollandaise: Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water. Do not let the water touch the top pan. Bring water to simmer. In a top pan, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, pepper, Worcestershire sauce & 1 tbsp water.
- Add melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 tbsp at a time whisking constantly. Add a tsp or two of hot water to thin if necessary. Whisk in salt. Remove from heat and let stand covered until you need it.
- Poach eggs. I use the poach pods to create mine.
- While the eggs are poaching, brown the Canadian bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat. Toast the English muffins in a toaster.
- Spread the toasted English muffins with softened butter and put a piece of Canadian bacon on each half. Place the poached egg on top of the bacon. Drizzle the Hollandaise sauce over and top with chives. Serve immediately.
