This delectable breakfast of Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce takes less than 20 minutes and doesn’t leave you with a pile of dirty dishes.
Holidays have always been important in our home, our motto is, “A Day is just a day unless someone makes it a special day”
And we don’t wait until the end of the day to make the most of those special days like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas Morning or celebrating a birthday or anniversary, we begin with a gourmet breakfast!
What do we consider a gourmet meal, you ask.
It can be different for everyone but to us, it’s a dish that is rich with several layers of flavor, a dish that we don’t indulge in that often, a dish we save for those special occasions since it’s richer than our normal fare. A dish that is reserved for celebrations and designed to make everyone feel extra special.
But gourmet meals don’t have to be hard and time-consuming, for instance, this delectable breakfast of Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce did actually take less than 20 minutes.
So go grab an egg poacher (seriously buy a good egg poacher, you will always be glad you did), a bowl that is microwave safe, a cooking sheet and a blender and we will show you how to make a Gourmet breakfast in just a few easy steps.
Or if you don’t like Hollandaise sauce, leave the blender and bowl in the cabinet and have poached eggs on thick Candian Bacon over perfectly toasted English muffins!
Either way works for us!
Now wouldn’t this make today very special if you were cutting into this delectable gourmet breakfast?
Go for it, you certainly deserve it!
