Pretender Eggs Benedict with Asparagus, Bacon, Ham, and Swiss Cheese

Jane Whittaker


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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.


2 medium
english muffins, split in 2, and buttered
4 slice
swiss cheese, thinly sliced
4 slice
bacon, fried crisp, and put on paper towels to drain
4 oz
ham, sliced thin, deli ham is good for this
4 large
eggs, beaten
4 tsp
1/2 tsp
each salt and pepper
12 medium
spears cooked asparagus. you will want the spear ends here, cut into 2 inches long
1 pkg
knorr hollandaise sauce
1 c
1/4 c


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.
