I do love to mix things up recipe-wise on this blog. Lasagna Cupcakes, Bacon Cinnamon Rolls, Chocolate Merlot Tarragon Truffles…there’s really not too many culinary boundaries that I’m not willing to jump right over. But every once in a while I get a yearning for a tried and trusted classic, and one of my favorites is Eggs Benedict. Whenever I see it on a menu somewhere I am sucked right in like a bee to honey, and so it was only a matter of time before I had to try it right there in my kitchen.
And whenever I get a craving for something classic, there’s one site that I tend to turn to over and over, because I know I am going to find perfect, clear, utterly reliable recipes, and that is the perfectly named Simply Recipes. While there are certainly a ton of wonderfully exotic recipes on this site, it’s also a terrific resource for things that you know and love but don’t yet have the perfect recipe for. So on that day that I simply HAD to make my own eggs benedict, I made a beeline for Simply Recipes, and there it was. Canadian bacon, poached eggs, a simple blender hollandaise…classic and scrumptious and exactly, exactly what I had in mind.
It’s like finding that perfect, regular, ordinary pair of jeans. Sometimes in a sea of low-rise-flare-boyfriend-cut-indigo-wash-jeggings, you just want a good old pair of Levi’s.
Or a perfect, regular, ordinary plate of eggs benedict, right in your own kitchen.
Thanks, Simply Recipes!
