I love Eggs Benedict which is high in fat and cholesterol. Now that I have to watch my intake of both, I found this recipe and it is a wonderful alternative. Serve with fresh assorted fruit for an elegant brunch.

Great breakfast - I made full recipe but used 5 whole eggs and used cheddar for both the omelette and the sauce and served on toasted wholemeal/wholegrain bread and then realized after we had eaten I had forgotten to put the chives on but the DM, DS and I all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you PaulaG for a great breakfast recipe and Nimz for recommended, made for I Recommend Ttag game.

A great, light supper. I mixed some chives in the sauce while cooking it, for added herb flavor. The sauce is VERY good! I subbed fat-free sour cream for the yogurt, and lean pressed ham for the Canadian bacon. Since this was all we were having, we each had 2, but one would be quite filling if served with fruit or salad. Made for Partying The Diabetic Way 2009.

Simply outstanding! I did use real eggs and whole milk, but other than that I made exactly as specified. Two of these made a wonderful dinner last night.
