Eggs Benedict aka Heaven on a Plate

This really is heaven on a plate and most certainly is not a slimmers delight – but hey, you got to live on the edge every now and again.  There is a little bit of prep work involved with making Eggs Benedict but it is SO worth it.  I don’t enjoy the English muffin so swap that out with a potato & onion rosti and replace the ham with crispy streaky bacon – perfect! 😀

Eggs Benedict


2 medium potatoes peeled, grated and squeezed through a cloth to remove all the liquid
1 small onion peeled, grated and squeezed through a cloth to remove all the liquid
Streaky bacon – 3 strips per rosti – probably not necessary but oh so nice
Hollandaise Sauce
Eggs – 1 per rosti


  1. Divide and roughly shape the potatoes and onion into thin disks and fry in a little olive oil over a medium heat – turning regularly to prevent burning.  Fry until browned and crispy.
  2. Fry the bacon until crispy and keep warm.
  3. Make the Hollandaise Sauce.
  4. Poach the Eggs.
  5. Plate and serve.

  1. Mandy,
    Is this how they eat eggs in h e a v e n ?

    Gorgeously presented. O, My!

    have a great weekend, dear. xx

  2. There’s that poached egg again! If this were to the only way one could enjoy a poached egg, it would be enough. Lucky for us, it isn’t! A great recipe, Mandy. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Sigh! I will definitely be making this very soon as we came home from a week away to find almost 50 eggs stacked up neatly by our visiting neighbour. We have now given lots away but I still have plenty for us! Love this dish and you make it sound so straighforward and simple.

    • 50 eggs! WOW! I would be enjoying eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thanks Tanya, I like to work with a “plan” – sometimes easier said than done but this isn’t too much effort, except for all the pots and pans. 🙂

  4. I actually don’t think I’ve ever eaten eggs Benedict. I know Mike has, but I don’t think I’ve ever tried it. You certainly make it look and sound delicious though. 🙂

  5. How aptly named this post is Mandy. I really can’t think of a better breakfast in the world than this. Love that you put it over potatoes and that is one perfectly poached egg. Onward to the previous post where I’ll get the tips and tricks for it!

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
