Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite brunch foods yet I hesitate to make it. The stress of making hollandaise sauce that will not break added to the stress of making perfectly poached eggs intimidates me.
This recipe for Eggs Benedict with a Twist solves the problem of the hollandaise sauce by using an easy cheese sauce made with Canadian Parmesan Cheese. However, the eggs still need to be poached so take a minute to watch the video and see how easy it is. For me it seems the key to success is to have the water barely simmering and gently stir while the egg is cooking. If this still seems like too much, an easy hack is to use a microwave egg poacher.
Adding sliced tomatoes and avocado gives the dish a light, fresh taste and adds important nutrients. These include vitamin A from the tomatoes, and fibre and healthy fats from the nutrient-dense avocado.
Enjoy this elegant dish at brunch over the holiday season (or anytime)!
