I made a Easter Morning treat for a group of friends. They all love eggs benedict, except for 1 vegetarian in the group who I substituted some chopped up asparagus in place of the ham. This made her a happy camper also. The use of farm fresh eggs gives this a deep color as the ranch egg yolks are very dark yellow
