 Categories: Eggs
      Yield: 4 servings
      1 qt Water
      1 tb Vinegar
      1 ts Salt
      8    Fresh eggs
      4 tb (1/2 stick) unsalted
           -butter, softened
  1 1/2 c  Cooked crab meat,  fresh or
      4    English muffins
           Paprika (optional)
      4    Thin slices orange, cut In
           -half (optional)

------------------ORANGE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE-----------------------
    1/2 lb (2 sticks) unsalted butter,
           -cut into pieces
      4    Egg yolks
      1 tb Orange juice
      1 ts Grated orange zest
    1/2 ts Grated lemon zest
    1/2 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Dry mustard
    1/8 ts Cayenne pepper
  Prepare the Hollandaise sauce, and keep it warm.  Mix the water with
  the vinegar (which will help the egg whites set quickly) and put it
  with the salt in a wide, shallow saucepan.  Bring water to boil, then
  reduce heat to gentle simmer.  One at a time, break each egg into a
  separate small dish or bowl; then, holding the bowl very near the
  surface of the water, gently slip in the egg.  Add more eggs to the
  pan, taking care not to crowd them.
  Continue simmering until whites are firmly set and yolks are covered
  with slightly opaque film, about 3 minutes.  Then use a slotted spoon
  carefully to remove each egg to a folded kitchen towel to drain. With
  small kitchen knife, carefully trim any ragged edges from whites.
  While the eggs are poaching, melt half the butter in large skillet
  over moderate to low heat, and saute the crab meat until heated
  Split and toast the English muffins and spread their cut sides with
  remaining butter.  Place two muffin halves on each serving plate. Top
  each half with some crab meat and then a poached egg.  Spoon or pour
  enough Hollandaise over each egg to cover it and spread down the side
  of the muffin onto the plate.  If you wish, garnish with a dusting of
  paprika and half an orange slice.
  Makes 4 servings.
  In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat until it's all liquid.
  place remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender and
  process until smoothly blended.  With the machine running, pour in
  the melted butter in a slow, steady stream until it is completely
  mixed in and the sauce is thick. transfer sauce to small metal or
  glass bowl, and set it inside a larger bowl or 1)an of hot water to
  keep it warm.
  Makes about 1 1/4 cups.
