You need to go back and re-read Atkins, egg cholesterol is as big a myth as oatmeal lowering cholesterol...

I concur. It's the worlds most perfect breakfast. Don't forget the paprika.

Yep, you're going to die...

But it sounds good!

What's in eggs Benedict?

From the bottom up:

English muffins. Unfrozen is best. Their split halves should be toasted to crispness. Tearing the halves apart with a fork or with hands, rather than slicing them, increases their surface area, and therefore also their flavor and absorbancy. Few restaurants bother. English muffins need not be the soft, yeasty, most popular Thomas's brand. Actually, they should not be, since Thomas's standard muffins are too small and their sandwich-size muffins are too large. Matthew's is a good retail brand of English muffin in the New York City area.

Canadian bacon. Standard bacon comes from pork "bellies," the underside of the hog, along the ribs. Canadian bacon comes from the meatier loin, along the backbone. It is trimmed of excess fat and is cured like ham. Often, ordinary ham is substituted in eggs Benedict. Canadian bacon should be freshly grilled, but is always packaged presliced, which does not improve flavor or texture. Technically, it is "Canadian-style" bacon if it is not of Canadian origin. Canadians do not eat it more than any other pork-product-loving people, though they may call it back bacon or pea-meal bacon.

Eggs. Poached till whites are set but not chewy. Vinegar may have been added to help set the whites, but that should not be detectable. The yolk can range from runny to almost set. The yolk should be hot during cooking; it is a very special bonus if it's still hot, yet not too thickened, when it reaches your table. Excess white is sometimes trimmed before serving.

Hollandaise sauce. A hardly cooked beaten egg yolk, gently thickened with hot drawn butter, plus a squirt of lemon juice and/or dusting of paprika or similar spice. The lemon flavor and/or spice should not be overwhelming. Hollandaise should not be too buttery, which overwhelms the flavor of the poached eggs and Canadian bacon beneath it. Low-end eggs Benedict is served with instant hollandaise sauce (reviewed at the bottom of the recipes page).

13 years in the Navy and I've had 'eggs to order' available everyday for
at least 95% of that time.

Eggs to order is a relative term, that is if you want your eggs fried you can have 'em.

Every time I go through the chow line at breakfast the guy on the grill yells
out: "Next on eggs?" and I yell back: "Eggs benedict!!"
New cook: "WTF is that?"
I answer: "Just poach me an egg and I'll worry about the rest."
New cook: "Poach?"
Me: "Nevermind, gimme a raw egg"
New cook: "I can't serve raw eggs!"
Line captain (HMFIC) intervenes:"Give 'im an MF'n egg and get the line moving!!"

I get my eggs benedict by poaching the egg in a bowl covered in water popped in the microwave
and adding some pseudo-holandaise sauce made w/mayo+mustard+texaspete.

Man, I am so sorry for you, but kudos for your ingenuity. I bet if you ask the Captains chef he can make it. Reminds me of making MRE chili from this and that because I was sick of the standard fare.

SoS
