Eggs Benedict

eggs benedict

Eggs Benedict is possibly my favorite breakfast or brunch recipe.

The mix of poached eggs, toasted English muffin and ham is wonderful together. With the addition of Hollandaise sauce, it’s all pulled together in one glorious taste sensation.

Eggs benedict may seem like a difficult or gourmet breakfast recipe, but it is really quite simple. Just add a few quick ingredients to poached eggs and you are ready to go.

Of course you can get a package of powdered hollandaise sauce mix, and it is tasty, but if you want the real thing, look at our recipe for hollandaise sauce. It is not too difficult or time consuming to make it yourself.

I love perfectly poached eggs slathered in homemade hollandaise sauce on a toasted English muffin.

Tips:

  • Peameal bacon is a Canadian phenomenon. It is an uncured bacon that has been rolled in corn meal. Slice it into 1/8″ slices, fry as bacon and use in place of the ham. It is quite delicious.
