Ex-Epic Meal Time chef and personality Josh Elkin is quickly building a discography of recipe music videos worthy of one massive mixtape drop come a few months from now. Today he dropped his latest in a series of recipe raps, the Eggs Benedict.
Lines bang over auto-tune, paritcularly the embarassingly catchy auto-tuned hook “I really like breakfast,” and “these eggs Benedict so epic.” The video starts with Josh waking up in a silk robe, to the kitchen sipping on Bailey’s in coffee, and hits every last recipe step by the end of the 2-minute jam.
Could there be a wave Rap Recipe Music videos? The song is also available on iTunes — I also recommend watching the video in tandem with these steps, in case you get lost:
Fry 4 slices of bacon on a pan and set aside.
Melt 1/2 cup of butter.
Toast two english muffins and set aside.
Whisk together 2 egg yolks and the juice of one lemon in a metal bowl until it doubles in volume.
Heat up 2 inches of water in a saucepan big enough to hold the bottom of the metal bowl.
Add the bowl to the top of the boiling pot making sure it doesn’t touch the water. Whisk the contents of the bowl and combine with the melted butter until it thickens and becomes a sauce.
Take it off the heat and add a pinch of salt and paprika.
Heat up a larger saucepan or pot with water and bring to a boil.
Add a teaspoon of vinegar to the boiling water. Using a spoon, make a whirlpool and crack the eggs inside. Cook for about 3 minutes extract with a slotted spoon.
Lay down your english muffins, add the bacon strips, the poached egg, and then top with the hollandaise sauce.
