Ok what your looking at is a plate of Eggs Benedict-
Eggs Benedict is an American breakfast dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce. I'm blogging about eggs Benedict today because every April 16th is National Eggs Benedict Day. This is one breakfast that hits my taste buds to a T. I love a poached egg because I like the yellow of my eggs runny and I could eat Hollandaise sauce by the spoonfuls. I can just taste that emulsion of egg yolk and melted butter with a touch of cayenne pepper right now. ha ha ha- I even like to squeeze a bit of lemon on top.
My favorite restaurant for Eggs Benedict is..........
(drum roll please.....) The Cheesecake Factory. What? You didn't know the Cheesecake Factory had Eggs Benedict? Well they do. In fact they have a lovely brunch menu on Sunday mornings and Eggs Benedict is always what I order. I know I shouldn't but I always order extra sauce. It's a good thing we only go for breakfast there once a month. We would go more often if we lived closer to the restaurant but .... woe is me it takes an hour and 15 minutes to get there.
Do you make your own Hollandaise Sauce?
I try and make it off and on but I'm not real good at it. I can never get it as smooth as I want it to be. I love it pored over baked vegetables along-side a grilled steak. Hummm I wonder what else it's good on?
