Thank you Doc. No I haven't posted it but it is pretty simple:
toast and butter english muffin, cook and place a slice of Canadian bacon on each muffin half, place a poached egg on top of the bacon and top with Hollandaise sauce then a grind of black pepper. I am sure someone (Maybe Mama or GG?) posted a recipe when she got her poach pods (I also did my eggs in my poach pods) so I didn't want to duplicate her thread.

The sauce? :whistling:


Buy package of Knorr's Hollandaise sauce; follow directions on back. :chef: :yum:

If you don't have any Knorr's Hollandaise in your pantry or if (like me) you don't have a place to get it, here is a quick and easy way to make it:

□ 1/2 cup butter
□ 3 egg yolks
□ 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
□ Dash of cayenne pepper

Place egg yolks in blender with the lemon juice, turn blender on high speed for 5 seconds to blend. Melt butter in microwave until almost boiling. Turn blender back on high speed and gradually pour in butter. It will thicken into a beautiful yellow hollandaise in 20-40 seconds. The sauce may be kept warm by placing the blender bowl in warm water. The sauce cannot be reheated.

Thanks Karen!! I needed a quick meal so I took the shortcut. LOL This meal only took like MAYBE 10 minutes. I did the muffins under the broiler. LOL The cayenne pepper goes in the yolks right?

Yes, Peeps, I guess the cayenne pepper goes in the yolks...sorry I dropped that part! I think the Knorr stuff tastes very good, and if I could buy it, I would. But I've been making this version since I bought my first Osterizer blender back in the 1960s(!). It was in the handbook that came with it, and it's pretty quick, has a nice bright taste, and I've always told myself that the butter cooks the egg yolks...

I got up this morning determined to make Mama's pumpkin pancakes and then realized that I did not have ANY syrup. So I made this TNT crustless quiche with minced red onion, bacon, spinach, oaxaca and manchego cheese, sliced tomatoes on top. It was good with some grilled Italian bread and fresh watermelon. Jerry gave it a "9" - high praise from him for something that does not have any potatoes.

Thanks for starting this thread, Peeps - Sunday is the only day we really eat breakfast, but sometimes we do have breakfast for dinner!

That looks fantastic Karen!!

I don't make eggs benny very often and have only made homemade hollandaise once many years ago (I remember it was a pain!!). No one in my house really likes it but me so homemade once every 5 years is enough for them!! LOL My aunt made them and used Knorr's and I liked it so I have been using that since.

Re: The "Breakfast" thread
 
Thanks, Peeps. Jerry doesn't care much for Hollandaise, either, but I sneak it in there every now and then, because I like it SO much, especially on asparagus.

Breakfast Tacos - I like to make a big pile of these and put them in the fridge. They're good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

I've gotten on a kick lately of making my own Egg McMuffins from my homemade Whole Wheat English Muffins. I cook the eggs in a muffin ring so they fit perfectly on the muffin.

Oh, I forgot to mention that like Lay's potato chips, "you can't eat just one!" Since making the whole wheat muffins, I don't even think about making them with straight AP flour. The stone ground whole wheat flour adds an incredible flavor that you don't get with white flour. My son and his girlfriend now just make two apiece when they make them.

I used to love Heckers and Hodsons brands but I have problems finding them.

I like to make a breakfast crossant. I slice the crossant and heat it in the oven until crispy. In the meantime I scramble eggs, bacon ane melt cheese to go inside it. Add fresh strawberries or other fresh fruit and breakfast is served.

that's my kinda early morning brekkie, leni! plenty of contrasts

Re: The "Breakfast" thread
 
Thanks luvs. Another breakfast that I like to make is a German one that is translated as farmers breakfast. As you can see it is very filling.

2 strips of bacon per person cut into bite sized pieces
1 small potato per person cubed
chopped onion to taste
1 chopped bell pepper or more as desired
2 eggs per person
grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet cook the bacon until there are enough drippings and add the potatoes to brown. Add the bell pepper when the potatoes are almost done. Then add the onion when the peppers are close to being done. All of this is stirred together until done. Drain the skillet. Now the eggs are cracked open over the mixture. They are allowed to cook for a few minutes before the whole thing is stirred together. Just before the eggs are completely set, spread the grated cheese over the top. Cover and let it melt. Serve with toast or biscuits.

Jimmy Dean just came out with Skillets which is almost the same. He has bacon, ham, and sausage versions. No cheese though.

A fast way to do this is to use a package of potatoes O'brien and add bacon and cheese. It just doesn't have the flavor though.
