  • Ready In

  1. Stir butter, dill, lemon zest, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until combined. Set aside.
  2. Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar and a pinch of salt. Crack an egg into a bowl then gently slip the egg into the water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs until whites are firm and yolks have thickened but are not hard, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, then transfer to a warm plate.
  3. Generously spread each English muffin half with dill butter. Top with a layer of smoked salmon, then 1 poached egg. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to taste. Garnish with a dill sprig and serve.

I must admit that this is a great alternative to healthier eating. I did miss the hollandaise, I'm afraid…it's a mouth-feel thing, but I really did love this recipe. I added a baked tomato and...

Wow...I can't believe this has so few ratings. It was great. I have to say, I had never had poached eggs or smoked salmon before this recipe. I loved it! The kids loved it. The husband loved...

My daughter loves it! She's a picky teen and doesn't like yolks so I left out the yolks and it's still really good and I substituted with dried dill.

Was a great use of last night's leftover grilled salmon! I was quite pleased with this breakfast and will definitely keep in mind for a quick dinner as well.
