National Eggs Benedict Day

1 Meyer Lemon Eggs Benedict_032212_0042

Today is National Eggs Benedict Day. Eggs Benedict is my all time favorite breakfast!  There,s nothing that I don’t like about it.  The traditional version starts with a crunchy sour base of English muffins topped with BACON, followed a poached egg and then smothered in a silky buttery lemony cream sauce.  Heaven on plate that’s all there is to it!

Nothing in the food world stays basic!  Even my version uses Redneck Bacon, grilled asparagus and a blender Meyer lemon hollandaise sauce with a touch of thyme.

Because I love Eggs Benedict, I’m forgoing Motorcycle Monday and sharing my eggs benny love.  I’ve gathered together some links so you can check out all the many ways of Eggs Benedict:
