One of the most expensive and enticing breakfast creations on a restaurant menu, Eggs Benedict can turn your kitchen table into a Food Network showplace without sending you to a therapist for food angst. It’s a simple matter of assembling several distinct steps to create a masterpiece.
This recipe calls for Organic Prairie bacon or ham, and but the platform invites creativity for vegetarians and pescetarians as well. Try with a bed of fresh, sautéed spinach or Swiss chard (called Eggs Florentine). Or make it California-style with thinly sliced avocados and fresh bean sprouts layered underneath the poached egg.
