How many way can you think of an eggs Benedict recipe? NOTES : Try adding 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped dill, or for a kick add chili powder or cayenne pepper to the sauce just before topping the eggs. The sauce is best prepared with a double boiler method to avoid over cooking or scorching. Also see my Southwest Eggs Benedict
