What is there NOT to love? This is my all-time favorite breakfast, which unfortunately I do not make very often possibly for the reason; it has 892 calories, with 71 g of fat! The good news is there's a whole stack of low-fat Eggs Benny recipes on the Internet. If I make this twice a year I’m lucky, so of course I had to make it for St. Patrick’s Day Foodie Friday hosted by Michael, Designs by Gollum. Make sure you check out her blog to link up with other bloggers who participate in Foodie Friday, you’ll find some super recipes!
The recipe is not complex at all…start with a toasted English muffin with a slice of Canadian bacon on it, topped with a poached egg and creamy Hollandaise sauce. There are literally dozens of recipes for Hollandaise on the Internet and in cookbooks worldwide. I’m confessing I do not make any of them…. My time is precious to me so I use the Knorr packaged Hollandaise Sauce mix, which in my opinion tastes very good. I’ve been told that the McCormick brand is very good also, though I have never tried the brand.
If you’re going to indulge and make Eggs Benedict, you may as well go all-out and serve the dish with a chilled Mimosa!!
Make sure you all stop by Cuisine Kathleen and join in on Tuesday, March 17 for a St. Patricks Celebration "IRISH" style. There will be a Mr. Linky so you can link your blog to Kathleens!! Hope to see you all there...
And never want as long as you live.
