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. The Test Kitchen

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


  • 1You 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.
  • 2Split muffins and toast to your liking, butter them.
  • 3Put 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.
  • 4Spray the container you are going to cook your eggs in with non stick spray.
  • 5Put 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
  • 6Put each egg in microwave and cook 1 minute.
  • 7Meanwhile make Hollandaise to package directions using the 1 cup milk and 1/4 cup butter.
  • 8Place each egg on each muffin, and cover with Hollandaise.
