17 Twists On The Classic Eggs Benedict Recipe

Molly Yeh

Eggs Benedict represents everything we should not be eating in the mornings. It's a decadent stack of Canadian bacon, poached eggs and English muffin that gets generously doused in a buttery, rich hollandaise sauce; it's no wonder that Eggs Benedict one of the best-tasting dishes you can find on a breakfast menu. Anywhere.

While we love the classic version of this dish, there are many variations that are worth trying too. Replacing the pork with salmon lightens it up a bit, swapping the English muffin for a biscuit makes it even more decadent, and adding guacamole is never, ever a bad idea.
