Eggs Benedict is a classic breakfast dish that can come in many different versions. The classic Eggs Benedict is basically a poached egg on top of a grilled english muffin and canadian bacon, then topped with a creamy hollandaise sauce.
Usually seen as a upscale breakfast items, mostly because of the hollandaise sauce. Hollandaise sauce is seen as a challenging sauce to master, but if you know what you are doing, its really not.
Like I mentioned before, eggs benedict can be served in a lot of different ways. As long as you keep in mind the basics of eggs benedict:
- Major component-generally what the dish is named after, usually either a protien (canadian bacon, bacon, salmon, etc.) or vegetable (tomato, avocado, etc.)

When making eggs benedict, the sky is the limit, whatever combinations you can imagine, you can do. So try making a few different variations and create your own eggs benedict signature creation. For me, my favorite is:
Eggs Benedict-New Mexico version – A fresh tortilla for the bread, some shredded pork tossed in red chile on top of the tortilla with the poached egg on top of the meat. Then, to finish it off I add some fresh roasted green chili to the hollandaise sauce and smother the whole thing in the “Green Chili Hollandaise”
