I played chef and created a meal of Eggs Benedict and hash browns. To make breakfast for 6 girls, I needed to cook 12 eggs, cook bacon, toast English muffins and grill onions. My big struggle is always timing when I cook. How do I make everything come out hot at the same time?
Now, back to the bacon. The Canadian bacon traditionally on Eggs Benedict is a little pricey, so I went with maple bacon, which not only tastes delicious, but smells awesome while your cooking it. You know what else smells delicious? Grilling onions. I put grilled onions on everything and it turns out my friends are also fans.
Lastly, I made Hollandaise sauce. It was the first time I've done that. I didn't make it from scratch, so I used Knorr mix which only requires butter and milk. It's not quite the same as the real thing, but, for an inexpensive make-shift college brunch, it was REALLY tasty.
Perhaps the best part of all this? The ingredients only cost me about $20 total. Between 6 girls, it was an inexpensive way to enjoy the holiday.
Next up for me? Turning in my book on Wednesday! I promise to blog more about it soon. Happy Easter and (slightly early) April!
