If you want to make your own Hollandise sauce, go ahead, but I was feeling frisky this AM and used a packet of Knorr Holandaise sauce mix instead.

I made this for my husband one morning and he couldn't stop raving! This is a wonderful "cheat" that makes for a terrific presentation. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Pretender Eggs Benedict with Asparagus, Bacon, Ham, and Swiss Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. You will need to have something to cook the eggs in the microwave in that make them a perfect size for the muffins. I bought mine at Wally World. They are plastic, and open up on a hinge.
  2. Split muffins and toast to your liking, butter them.
  3. Put one slice of Swiss on each muffin, break the bacon in 3 pieces, put on Swiss, put one slice of ham on top of the bacon.
  4. Spray the container you are going to cook your eggs in with non stick spray.
  5. Put one egg in each container, and whip, add 1 teaspoon cream to each egg and whip. Put 3 cut spears of asparagus on top, salt and pepper
  6. Put each egg in microwave and cook 1 minute.
  7. Meanwhile make Hollandaise to package directions using the 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup butter.
  8. Place each egg on each muffin, and cover with Hollandaise.
