Well, it must be recipe week here at Sunny Slide Up! Personally I think it has something to do with the fact that we were all snowed in last week – what a perfect time to try out something new!
I love Eggs Benedict. It is kind of sad how much I love them. If I go to brunch, I almost always treat myself to this amazing goodness that comes together.
Last week I attempted to poach an egg… that was a disaster! So, I improvised, fried an egg, and we were on our way!
Welcome…. FRIED EGGS BENEDICT
This honestly was so simple, delicious and approved by The Mister!
First get your english muffin and split them in half. I used one per person and toasted them just enough so they were warm.
Fry an egg so it will still be runny and top each muffin half with one egg.
While I was frying my egg, I had my bacon – baking in the oven. I always do my bacon this way now… Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil to catch the grease, lay out the bacon flat and it will be crispy in about 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven…. NO MESS… NO HOT GREASE SPLATTERING.
Top the egg with bacon. I used 2 pieces cut in half on each section.
While the egg and bacon was cooking, I also sauteed some mushrooms and green onion in about a table spoon of butter… toss that on next!
And finally top with the hollandaise sauce. I used the recipe that Pioneer Woman uses.
I am telling you… This recipe was sooo good! We will make it again. Maybe when I am serving brunch… It looks so pretty and tastes so amazing!
You could top yours with anything you like… ham… spinach…leave off the mushrooms.
