1.  Get your Individual Hash Brown Cakes (view recipe at https://www.erecipe.com/recipes/show/id/2933) prepped and in the oven.

2.  Poach your eggs, add 1 tablespoon vinegar (I went with white wine vinegar) per every 1 quart of water. Bring the water mixture to a low simmer, swirl the water with a spoon and quickly add your egg. (This will create a central pull so the egg does not spread out.) Let the egg cook for 3-4 minutes, remove once egg whites are cooked and yolk still jiggles. Remove and place in a bowl with cold water. Repeat with rest of eggs, set aside until needed.

3.  Bring all the ingredients for the lobster (except the lobster) to a boil in a large pot. Place the live lobster in another large pot and pour the boiling liquid over the lobster. Place a lid on top and bring to a boil. Cooking for another 10-12 minutes. Remove the lobster, place in an ice bath to stop cooking.

4.  While the lobster is cooking bring a pot of water to a simmer. In a medium stainless steel bowl whisk together the egg yolks & lemon juice until creamy and doubled in size. Place the bowl over the simmering water, not touching the water. Continue to whisk, add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time until butter is fully incorporated. Continue whisking until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat and add the Tabasco & salt to taste. Cover and place in warm area until needed.

5.  Once cool enough to handle remove lobster from ice bath, remove claws & tail. (You can save the body for stock – that’s what I did & I’m using it for V-Day dinner!) Split the tail & remove the meat, also remove meat from the claws.

6.  With the simmering water used for the hollandaise sauce, reheat your poached eggs by placing them in the water for 30 seconds. Remove and place on paper towel to drain.

7.  Plate your Individual Hash Brown Cakes – 2 per person. Place the tail meat on top of one cake & claw meat on other. Place one poached egg atop each cake. Mix the sliced chives into the hollandaise and drizzle generously over the eggs.

8.  Serve immediately.
