Traditional versus Non-Traditional
The traditional recipe combined poached eggs and Canadian bacon served on top of a buttery toasted English muffin and covered with Hollandaise sauce.
While this is the traditional recipe, this can be changed up to your tastes. Today, I made this recipe using homemade biscuits rather than an English muffin. You could even swap out the Canadian bacon for a slice of ham or a slice or two of bacon. There have been a few recipes that I have seen adding avocado. Someday, I may give that one a try too.

Easy to Make at Home
Eggs Benedict is often an egg dish that people order in restaurants as a special treat. This is easy to make at home too for everyday meals or even those special occasions like when you want to serve someone breakfast in bed to show you care. How about Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Sweetest Day, Christmas Morning, or some other special occasion like an anniversary.
Taking time to make a special meal is so personal and meaningful. When the recipe is easy and fancy, even better.

Steps in Preparing the Eggs Benedict
- Make the Hollandaise sauce. Here is my quick no-fail recipe for the sauce.
- Poach the eggs. The egg yolks should be soft and runny while the egg whites are cooked.
- Cook the Canadian bacon, or ham , or regular bacon.
- Toast and butter the English muffin, bread, or biscuit.
- Start with the English muffin or biscuit, then Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and creamy hollandaise sauce. Serve and enjoy immediately
