Eggs Benedict is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. It was created at the Waldorf Hotel in 1894, for a customer hoping to find a cure for his morning hangover. I thought it was one of those dishes that should only be ordered in a restaurant until I found this recipe. Keep in mind that your eggs should be fresh and no more then 4 days old for perfect results. It is not as hard as it looks and what could be better then starting your day with a lightly toasted English muffin with a perfectly poached egg in a cloud of buttery hollandaise! Sheer heaven!
