Eggs Benedict with Tarragon and Chive Hollandaise Sauce Recipe at
Combine first 5 ingredients in processor. Blend 5 seconds. With machine running, carefully pour melted butter down feed tube and process until well-blended.

Transfer sauce to double-boiler set over simmering water. Add 3 tablespoons boiling water and lemon peel to sauce. Whisk until sauce is very hot, about 4 minutes. Whisk in chives and tarragon. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Fill egg poaching pan with enough water to come 3/4-inch up sides of pan. Bring water to simmer. Lightly spray egg poaching cups with cooking spray. Break 1 egg into each cup. Cover and cook until yolks are just set around edges but still loose in center, about 4 minutes. Transfer eggs to warmed plate and repeat with remaining 4 eggs.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Canadian bacon and saute until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Place 2 bacon slices atop each toasted English muffin half. Top each with 2 poached eggs. Drizzle with sauce and serve.
