I love Eggs Benedict. Its such a simple dish and yet at the same time it feels so special . . toasted english muffin topped with some bacon, an egg and hollandaise sauce. Yum! Normally it calls for a perfectly poached egg, but this version I am showing you today is simpler than that. It uses softly scrambled eggs, and it is delicious! This is the perfect holiday morning breakfast!
Toasting English muffins beneath a grill . . . simple. Check.
Grilling some back bacon . . . simple. Check.
Topping the bacon on the muffin . . . delicious softly scrambled eggs. So simple to do, and so very tasty. It's easy to do the whole lot all at once. Check.
A final gilding of Hollandaise sauce . . . not so simple to do, unless of course you buy it ready made. (I had some lovely ready made pouches from Christian Potier and they worked very well. But if you want to make an easy hollandaise from scratch, blender hollandaise is the way to go. There is a great recipe on Simply Recipes. This is the one I use. Its easy to follow and always turns out. Check.
If you like Eggs Benedict as much as I like Eggs Benedict you will be in Eggs Benedict heaven with this. Your family will love this and you will love the ease of creating it. It makes the perfect Christmas morning holiday breakfast. Elegant, delicious, and yet . . . so very simple.
