Eggs Benedict is my all-time favorite breakfast. I first learned how to make it when I was 10 years old. My family was on vacation in a small mountain town. One of the locals showed us how to assemble this savory dish. Since then, I make it several times a year, but always make sure to serve it on Christmas morning. It is sort of a tradition now! Recently, I decided to create a variation of eggs benedict by giving it a New Mexican kick. Green Chile Eggs Benedict!
My spin with these green chile eggs benedict is pretty simple. The classic eggs benedict layers a toasted english muffin, followed by canadian bacon, a poached egg, and creamy hollandaise sauce. I opted to lightly brown a tortilla, top it with fresh crumbled bacon, a fried egg, and a green chile hollandiase sauce. And, oooh man. Oooh man… this hollandaise sauce is amazing. I am not entirely sure why all hollandaise sauce isn’t made with green chile, but I have very strong feelings that it should be.
I mean, just look at those meaty chunks of vibrant green. Doesn’t it just look like it belongs in the sauce? I’m telling you, this is a meal that will transform eggs benedict for you. If you haven’t ever been a fan of (or tried) eggs benedict, you are in for a treat!
My green chile eggs benedict paired perfectly with pan-fried potatoes, tossed with freshly diced rosemary. It is a hearty, soul-satisfying breakfast of champions. You can conquer the world (or at least a good chunk of your to-do list) after indulging in this tasty breakfast!
Alright, here is the recipe!
