Eggs Benedict and a NEW Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway!
THE GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!!!
That’s right! A new Gooseberry Patch cookbook giveaway!
101 Breakfast and Brunch Recipes by Gooseberry Patch is an AWESOME cookbook ~ especially if you are a breakfast food lover like me. This series of cookbooks are my favorites because I LOVE cookbooks with photos and the photos in this book are great ~ they make me hungry which is always a good sign for a cookbook. More about the giveaway below!
Eggs Benedict is my all-time favorite breakfast meal and it’s what I order if I am having breakfast in a restaurant and I see it on the menu. It’s not something I make for myself because it takes time and some attention when poaching eggs ~ which I am not great at. I also make Hollandaise from a package (Knorr’s) because I just don’t want to be bothered.
This recipe is traditional and not hard to make ~ just take your time. The results are worth it!
Submitted by Diana Chaney from Olathe, KS
8 slices Canadian bacon
1 tsp lemon juice or vinegar
4 English muffins, split and toasted
3 tbsp butter, softened and divided
1 cup Hollandaise sauce, divided (use your own recipe or a package)
3 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Brown the bacon in a skillet over medium heat.
Meanwhile, fill a large saucepan with 2 inches of water and lemon juice or vinegar; bring to a simmer. Crack each egg in a shallow bowl, one at a time and slip carefully in the simmering water. Poach for about 3 minutes, until whites are set and yolks are soft.
Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and let drain for a minute on paper towels.
Top each muffin half with one tsp butter, a piece of bacon, one egg, and a spoonful or two of Hollandaise. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve at once.
Makes 4 servings.

At the present time, I am not adding anything to the A Recipe A Day facebook page since some people were having trouble with it. I don’t think it’s a problem on my end but I’m not going to add to it for the time being. I’ll be back there at the end of the summer.
