Recipe: Eggs Benedict


Eggs Benedict has to be one of my favorite breakfasts…. Actually I will make it for dinner sometimes too.

This is a perfect Sunday breakfast… serve it with fresh fruit salad and some good coffee… hmmm … perfect way to spend a Sunday morning.

I previously posted a recipe for Classic Hollandaise Sauce and a Slimmed Down Version.

Eggs Benedict Recipe

All you need:

English muffins, split and toasted
Butter or margarine
Canadian bacon slices, grilled or thin sliced deli baked ham
Poached eggs
Hollandaise Sauce

All you need to do:

For each person, you need 1 English muffin, split and toasted. Butter each half and place on a plate.

Place 1 slice of Canadian bacon on each half of muffin.

Place a poached egg on top of each slice of Canadian bacon.

Top with hollandaise sauce.

I like to garnish with a few snips of fresh chives or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

You could also use a Knorr sauce packet.... they really are pretty good... I've made their hollandaise... and you can use skim milk... if you want it light..

(I know... horrors... using a convenience sauce mix... when you're in a rush and don't want to fool with it... it's not a bad substitute)
