  • I would like to say thank you for this video. Well, all your videos are brilliant but this one I simply had to follow your instructions very simply. Yesterday was father's day and I wanted to make eggs benedict for my father. Poaching eggs and making the hollandaise sauce was always the bane of my existence but with your advice it turned out to be an utter success! So thank you very much. I look forward to watching more of these videos.

  • Very pale yolks

  • Would you be doing a Japanese eggs basics like omu rice, tamago-yaki, chawanmushi? :D

  • Can you do a country hash?

  • JUUL 2.55

  • ذي شكشوكه ويا وجهك


  • I want to see Babish vs. Bobbly Flay so I can see Flay's smug face disappear. Fuck Bobby Flay.

  • you shoudlt put any kind of shells such as lobster egg and shrimp etc. because it can clog your sink and waste time or use money just to have it fixed. also not just shells u cant also put rice brown rice and other kinds of grains as it will also clog your sink im judt saying rven tho you probably slim to none wont see this

  • You've seriously disappointed me by not cutting open those egg benedicts.

  • Cook your food babish

  • "something I'e always had trouble with" *oh really now babby*

  • Zatar? Like the green thyme grinded with olive oil?

  • Did any body else see the juul

  • Not really fan of Babish's style

  • Could the scotch egg work well with beef sausage?

  • Whispy egg whites, not yolks, but you have a good point Babish :)

  • cheese in shakshuka is an american thing. go to the middle east and get some there

  • Was that a juul big fella

  • In my cullinary class we made eggs Benedict and it took 2 class periods, after seeing the blender holindaise sauce doesn't scare the everliving shit out of me trying to make it again

  • did someone say eggs?

  • Rainbow Six Sage

  • FYI, Canadian bacon is not the bacon of Canada. We have actual bacon. I have no idea why you people call it that.

  • Where is the ketchup

  • where are the deviled eggs?!

  • damn, home boy sold all the way out on this one...

  • Can you make a hamburger out of sausage patty

  • you sounded more like H john Benjamin

  • Real question: why do y'all like runny egg yolks? Why not have it cooked?

    • Tastes better

    • If you cook it all the way, it gets a really bland flavor and texture

  • What pod?!

  • Have you ever thought about MasterChef or maybe a restaurant of your own

  • Şakşuka!

  • Can u make a video about acidy levels .. pls

  • “ some Emotionally available lemons”😂😂😂 this is why I watch BWB

  • I'm surprised Babish doesn't have dry hand-wet hand frying etiquette.

  • "basics"

  • I like that you can work your ads in without overtaking the video or distracting the attention. Well done.

  • Junskitchen does a really convenient looking soft egg for their ramen video

  • Am I the only one that noticed the juul in his hand when he took the plate away in the frying part

    • Yes. Out of the 1.2 MILLION people who have watched this, and despite all the other comments mentioning it, you are the ONLY one who noticed it.

  • See, I prefer my Eggs Benedict with Corned Beef instead of Canadian Bacon

  • doing great. although i liked the old style. no nonsense.

  • Nothing against you personally babish, but if you make hollandaise sauce in a blender, you’re a coward.

  • You cant re cook boiled eggs.

  • I see you juulin out here Babish

  • Your Jorah impression just makes you sound super congested, I'm afraid. Kick ass cooking though, my friend


  • Can you make _Egg Tempura Don_ like in Food Wars!?

  • Did he make a Bobs Burgers reference?

  • Eggcellent video

  • Great vid, like always, but mustard aioli? AIOLI? it's not even a fakeaoili or whatever you called it.


  • Funny you cooked 3 eggs since GOT has 3 dragons.

  • This is why I watch you

  • Anybody else spot the juul?

  • not how u make shakshuka btw

  • Deez nuts

  • Peel them *underwater*. Trust me.

  • FDA regulations lol, nice voice impression.

  • Also chef John's shakshuka blows this away.

  • You can also PERFECTLY poach eggs in the shell with a sous vide. Even easier, noting mod impressive than your guests cracking a poached egg.

  • Anyone else see his juul

  • This video inspired me to throw a brunch so that I could cook eggs benedict for the first time. I had never even eaten it before but I made the sauce, poached the eggs, fried the ham and subbed home made buttermilk biscuits for english muffins because I don't like english muffins..... It was delicious and everyone loved it, they were so impressed.

  • Its kinda like albondigas a Mexican recipe its the same but its not fried instead its boiled

  • As if the wasteful packaging wasn't enough to turn me off of Blue Apron, no self-respecting shakshuka has carrots and fucking potatoes but no tomatoes. Idk what that garbage was, but it wasn't shakshuka. That's a Denny's reject recipe.

  • I didn't figure out that shakshooka was shakshookeh until I heard zaatar

  • Tried making poached eggs multiple ties today. So far I threw out 20 failed eggs.

  • Andy is that a jUuL?

  • For roll eyes back Hollandaise, I suggest pouring off the milk solids from your butter and adding Tabasco.

  • I have no fryer. Any way to baake the eggs?

  • "Remove the "pour stuff into me hole" my favourite quote yet

  • Dude, you are so fucking funny. The writing is amazing, and thank you so much Babish.

  • I’d love to see a video on egg salad recipes !!

  • Hm I kinda want a fully british episode now... that would add to his amazing voice

  • How is it some of your videos aren't monetized? I mean you're cooking. that's it.

  • This is my second favorite Basics with Babish episode . . . I'm from Oklahoma and my grandfather was a meat cutter for several years, so the tomahawk episode takes priority. Seriously, I've only known about a tomahawk steak for a couple of years, but this discovery has changed my life.

  • There doesn't really seem to be a comprehensive guide to knowing what heat to use. Other than thing like "Medium-low heat" and "Ripping hot" and the like, there isn't really any detail about what heat to cook over. I'd love to see it.

  • Daaaaamn.. Your Scotch Eggs were impressive! Perfectly runny yolk 😳😍🍳👍

  • Pls do 🍔 burgers plsssssss

  • lmao nice juul

  • Either your cam is using a filter that makes the eggs look weird or your eggs just have really pale yokes

  • Who thought how to basic was gonna help

  • The egg yolks dont look healthy

  • Babish does it for

  • I peeped the juul

  • Absolutely godawful Jorah Mormont impression... Can't wait to try out those Scotch eggs though!

  • Eggs Benny on toasted Eggo waffles.

  • Has anyone else made one of these and had an 'expectation:reality' moment?

  • Every time they sponsor the video you should wear a blue apron just an extra little bit of promotion


  • This Shakshuka recipe is an abomination

  • You call this basics?

  • FYI zatar (Arabic term) is just thyme but dried XD


  • Sad there was no shirred egg but tbh its super easy. Grease a ramekin, break an egg in it. Put a teaspoon of butter and a sprinkle of cheese on top and bake in an oven for 17 minutes at 375 f

  • hahaha who new babish was a juuler you savage

  • Delicious food idea to have with say steak for example: Haggis fritters in panko breadcrumbs.

  • I want to be an unfathomable genius!!

  • Anyone see his juul LMAO

  • do it for juul

  • Why two episodes on eggs and one on chocolate chip cookies but none on fish?
