How to make Egg Benedict with Rice Cooker

I'm sure you guys have seen me posting lots and lots of food pichas recently.

Yes, today I am going to share with you guys a rice cooker recipe 
for making my favourite Egg Benedict. 

As you know, I live in hostel and I can't cook recenlty due to restriction.
So don't get me wrong, these pichas is taken before the rules was enforced ;)

Before we start, 
I shall give you guys a rough mindset about what's the outcome.
I have only a rice cooker.
no fridge,
no cooking pan,
no other cooking utensil like microwave,
or oven.

So with limited source of food,
and also limited equipment
I try to do as much food as I can to fullfill my food desire.
I am a western food lover
and I always exploring food around the world.

So I tried to make egg Benedict one day cause I was craving for it.
And after several times of experiment,
I have got the recipes right.

So here you go, enjoy!

There are four steps we are going to do to make egg Benedict:
1) baked the bread
2) prepare the filling: bacon/ vege of your choice.
3) make hollandaise sauce.
4) make half -boiled egg
*make sure you follow the steps to avoid mess.*

Things you need (for two servings):
Three eggs,
two pieces of lettuce,
two pieces of tomatoes
and two pieces of edge-cutted bread (You can use any other bread)

We start with baking the bread:
Apply some margarine on the bread

and put the bread on the heated cooker.
*to prevent cooker to turn off the cooking state,
put a tissue or whatever to prevent the button to click off.

Flip the bread several times to make sure it cooked.
I like it a bit brown so here's it!

Now we gonna prepare the filling.
 I am doing a vege one so I make sure the tomatoes and lettuce piece is dried.
*Use a clean tissue to suck the water out.

Cut the lettuce to fit the size of the bread

Finished with filling,
we move on to Hollandaise sauce.
seperate one egg yolk from egg white.

Add some salt, pepper, sugar and squeeze just a little bit of lemon.

Then whisk the egg yolk.

while continue to whisk the egg, 
add the warmed margarine liquid into the bowl  little by little.
*Make sure that you whisk at the same time to make sure the margarine are blended into the barter.

Then just warm it at the warm water
*Don not put it at the boil water or hot water or else the egg will become scramble egg due to high temperature*

And then we can move on to the last step
The half-boiled egg.

The point is,
make the egg white cook but leave the egg yolk uncook.
and make the egg white cover the egg yolk as much as possible.

The secret of making it happen is to add some lemon (or any acidic liquid such as vinegar) and a little of salt to the boiled water.

And pour the egg from the bowl
*Do not pour it straight from the egg*

Drained the water from the egg by using towel tissue after you take it out.

Arrange the filling accordingly.

Place the egg on top.

Pot the Hollandaise sauce.

And there you go! :D
