Favorite Eggs Benedicts

Favorite Eggs Benedicts | Rourke Vintage

Saturday (April 16th) was National Eggs Benedict Day, and while I totally missed it, I couldn't not post a roundup of my favorite Eggs Benedict. Because Eggs Benedict is delicious in so many forms. I found some that are gluten free, some are vegetarian, and some just go all out. Classic Eggs Benedict is as follows: English muffin + Canadian bacon + poached egg + hollandaise. These recipes all play off this formula to build a delicous breakfast (or lunch, or dinner).

I love this recipe. All the veg in there plus a goat cheese sauce makes this a totally feel good during-and-after recipe. And I can never say no to goat cheese.
