Eggs Trivette (Crawfish Eggs Benedict)

What else would you have for breakfast after a crawfish boil but Eggs Benedict with a cajun twist?

Honestly, after as much stuff as we indulged in, we probably should have just had a bowl of lawn clippings for breakfast. And lunch. But I thought that leftover crawfish, bacon, and a spicy hollandaise sauce sounded much better. And no reason to stop the overindulgent train on a weekend before noon, right?

Eggs Trivette (Crawfish Eggs Benedict)

Eggs Trivette

Eggs Benedict gets a Cajun makeover with leftover crawfish tails and a kicked-up hollandaise sauce.


  • For the spicy hollandaise sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2-2 tsp Creole mustard (or any brown or dijon mustard)
  • Tobasco sauce
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • For each serving:
  • 1 toasted English muffin half
  • 1 slice of cooked bacon
  • 1 poached or fried egg
  • Spoon of leftover crawfish tails, warmed


  1. In a heatproof bowl set over a small pot of simmering water, whisk egg yolks with water, whisking vigorously, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in lemon juice, a few dashes of Tabasco and 1/2 tsp of Creole mustard.
  3. Whisk in 1-2 pieces of butter at a time until melted.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and whisk in additional Creole mustard, if desired (I used 2 tsp total, after reserving some of the sauce for the Creole mustard hater in the house).
  5. Keep warm over the doubler boiler, whisking occasionally.
  6. Build your Eggs Trivette from the bottom-up: toasted english muffin half, bacon (breaking the pieces as necessary to fit), egg, spicy hollandaise sauce, and a spoonful of crawfish tails.

I am such a sucker for Eggs Benedict…or if I’m being really honest with myself, just about anything smothered in hollandaise. I might have to pick up some crawfish just to try this out over the weekend!
