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.

    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.
