Eggs Benedict for Two

4 eggs
2 cups swiss chard
4 slices tomato
4 slices pre-cooked Canadian bacon
2 english muffins

Hollandaise Sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
dash of paprika for dusting

In shallow pan filled with water and vinegar heat to simmer. Place egg poacher in pan, crack egg and gently drop into the perforated egg cup. Cook a few minutes until you reach the desired doneness.

In skillet, cook bacon a few minutes until warm. Drizzle a little olive oil in pan and saute swiss chard until a little wilted. Toast english muffins.

For hollandaise: Whisk egg yolk until frothy. Slowly stream in butter and lemon juice and whisk vigorously until thick. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds until heated through.

Place english muffins on plate, and layer bacon, swiss chard, tomato slice, poached egg, drizzle with hollandaise sauce, and sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    How cute is that poacher (perfect fit for a stocking!) And love your healthy take on Eggs Benedict. For years on Christmas morning, we'd make Rose McMuffins (my maiden name is Rose) – this recipe reminded me of that memory!
