That looks just like Eggs Benedict there, doesn’t it? But no. This is a Mock Benny.
A Mock Benny?! What on earth?
First of all, let me reassure you that j’adore Eggs Benedict. Almost as much as Eggs Florentine.
But after Thursday’s splash-out breakfast at a wonderful little cafe (Emma’s Country Kitchen) a short bike ride from here, I just wasn’t ready for them again. We had the most brilliant Eggs Benedict made with Mousseline Sauce at the cafe – they add heavy cream to their Hollandaise…. The eggs were delicious; we never ever ever want to have Eggs Benedict again. That’s the thing about Hollandaise Sauce, isn’t it? Sometimes there CAN be too much of a good thing.
