A staple of breakfast menus everywhere, is Eggs Benedict a meal we can make easily in our own kitchens? Of course! Using whole grain English muffins makes this a reduced guilt breakfast for the whole family. 


  • 1/3 c. reduced-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 c. canola mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. butter
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon

  1. To make Mock Hollandaise, combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring well with a wisk. Add butter and stir until butter melts. Keep warm.
  2. In a large shallow saucepan, add water and vinegar. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to a steady simmer.
  3. Break each egg into a custard cup, and gently pour into the pan.
  4. Simmer the eggs until the whites are firmly set, about 3 minutes.
  5. While eggs are poaching, cook the Canadian bacon in a medium skillet until nicely browned.
  6. Remove each egg with a slotted spoon and place gently onto a towel to drain.
  7. Place one muffin half on a plate and top with a slice of Canadian bacon and one poached egg.
  8. Top off with 2-3 Tbsp. of the Hollandaise sauce.
  9. Garnish with chopped chives.
