traitor

I got bored with omelettes, since I make them every morning for the little guy, I"ll tell you whats poppin' I opted for eggs benedict. I like these so much and I make them in so many ways it makes me dizzy. This crazy couple took the omelette to task and not only whipped up a nice one but got to EAT IT OUTSIDE if that isnt deluxe then I dont know what is.



I quartered red potatoes and drizzled olive oil and salt quick bounce around a hot saute pan and then popped them in the oven at 250 on a cookie sheet. Potatoes out of the way I filled a sauce pan with water and put some rice wine vinager and salt to boil for the eggs I have tried plain vinager and even red wine vinager believe me when I tell you I have tried other vinagers and I like rice wine -just enough 'other' flavor. On the boiling sauce pan I put a steel bowl and melted some butter to make the hollandaise. Hollandaise is quick after you separate the yolks. In a separate pan I sauted some collard greens and garlic slivers. Hollandaise made, potatoes roasted and 15 minutes have elapsed. Pop the english muffins in the toaster, poach the eggs assemble the dish, buttered toasted english muffin, a dab of collard greens, poached eggs, hollandaise, sweet shrimp (ama ebi) scallions, fresh ground pepper - and eat.



20 minutes from when I thought of it it was prepared, and 20 minutes after that it looked like this. Big breakfast in an hour, now what will I do?

Eggs Benedict is my absolute favorite breatfast/brunch meal ever. Getting someone to do it right in a restaurant is like asking someone to find the Holy Grail...

WHERE did you learn to cook like this? Heck, I don't I've ever even seen Eggs Benedict, but I have heard of them.

I need to start taking lessons.
