These Smoked Salmon and poached Gluten free Egg English Muffins are one of my favorite go to breakfast recipes.
It’s not only inexpensive it’s also super simple to make, your sure to want to enjoy this breakfast time and time again.
This recipe is much healthier to say an eggs benedict recipe! The reason being is we are skipping the hollandaise sauce and highlighting the creamy egg and smoked salmon flavors.
Also if you want you can add a salmon fillet on top of the smoked salmon cream cheese, however this is an optional step as having it with just the smoked salmon cream cheese is amazing also!
I do that often, however for this recipe I wanted to make it a little extra special.
If cooking a salmon fillet be sure to allow it to cool down some before flaking it and then placing it onto the cream cheese.
I like to use these Gluten Free English Muffins, however you can use your favorite brand in replace of course.
In order to make the best eggs benedict you will want to cook the eggs just right. And to do that you will simply add 2 tbsp of white vinegar to a medium pot of boiling water.
And once it reaches a boil you will want to turn down the heat to medium – low.
When it reaches a medium – low heat, simply crack one egg into a small ramekin boil. And slowly place it into the pot, repeat with a maximum of 3 eggs per pot.
You do not want to overcrowd the eggs and allow them to cook at the bottom of the pot, once they reach a firm yet soft on the inside texture.
REMOVE them with a spatula and strain over the sink. And wulla you have poached your eggs! Those eggs are what you will use in the benedict.

I’m a breakfast person, however most days I don’t have time to make a full breakfast and will opt for a breakfast shake such as my Cherry Berry Magic Smoothie.
On the days where I get to stay home in the mornings, I will make a full breakfast and this is the type of breakfast I will make.
It’s is absolutely delicious and is one of me and my partners favorite breakfasts actually. We will make this in our house at least a couple times per month.
Now don’t forget the fresh dill it really pulls this dish together!!
If you have never poached an egg, I promise you it’s not at all hard. You will simply want to bring a pot of water to a boil and once it reaches a boil you will stir in 2 tbsp of vinegar and then reduce it to a medium boil.
Meanwhile crack one egg at a time into a small ramekin bowl. Then you will want to dip a large spatula with holes in it of some kind into the pot and slowly pour the egg overtop of the spatula to slowly sumerge the egg in the water.
Holding the spatula in place you will allow each egg to simmer on a medium heat for about four minutes each till cooked. You are looking for a runny yolk, not to running and not to hard. That is it! You poached an egg! Still need direction? Here is an excellent video showing it: How to Poach an Egg
