My absolute favorite breakfast/brunch thing to get it Eggs Benedict. I love everything about it. It covers all the bases with the toasted English muffin, griddled Canadian bacon, runny poached egg, and indulgent Hollandaise sauce. I will order Eggs Benedict just about every time we go out for breakfast. It is my signature dish.
I love fluffy toasted English muffins.
I love lean Canadian bacon that has crunchy edges.
I love poached eggs with bright yellow yolks and firm set whites.
I love a smooth Hollandaise sauce that is very lemony.
I rate all eggs benedict dishes based upon those factors:
- Foundation (English muffin, bread, hash)- 20 pts
- Protein (Canadian Bacon, steak, crab cake, etc)- 20 pts
- Poached Egg- 25 pts
- Hollandaise Sauce- 25 pts
- Side- 10 points
