Let’s do brunch with this Easy Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce recipe!
I have always been a morning person…even as a teenager I never was one to sleep until noon, or even need my parents to wake me up for school. My internal alarm clock has always been set bright and early.
As a mom now, especially, as much as I treasure a good nights sleep, I love getting up before the rest of the family gets up for my “happy hour“. My brain is definitely the most functional in the mornings…any good ideas I’m going to have typically happen in the morning. Which, makes the rest of the day seem like kind of a wash, doesn’t it?Even though I love getting up early, I’m definitely not an early morning breakfast eater. In fact, brunch is my favorite meal! I’d love to eat something delicious and substantial around 10am every day as my breakfast/lunch meal.
I made Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce the other day as my brunch meal and let me tell you…whether you eat early in the morning or later in the day, this is the kind of meal to look forward to! The Hollandaise Sauce is super easy to make, and I found out, thanks to my friend Elise from Simply Recipes, that poaching an egg is incredibly simple too… I had no idea and had avoided making Eggs Benedict for so long because I assumed poaching an egg was hard.
