3 english muffins, split in halves (6)

6 eggs

2 Tbsp pesto

2 cups hollandaise sauce

6 strips prosciutto

1 ½ cups bruschetta


Turn oven to 375 Degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the prosciutto strips down, so not touching or overlapping. Place in oven for  6 – 7 minutes, until prosciutto is crispy. Set aside.

Make your hollandaise sauce and when done, mix in the pesto. Set aside.

Make bruschetta and set aside.

Toast the English muffin halves (butter them if you like them buttered).

Using an egg poacher (or the boiling water method, where you slip an egg in), poach the eggs until they are semi-soft. Remove from heat.

To make eggs benedict, place a muffin half on a plate. Top with the prosciutto slice, a poached egg, topped with hollandaise sauce and garnished with the bruschetta. Enjoy!
