Eggs Benedict

One of the most elegant breakfast dishes, eggs benedict is also, one of the easiest to prepare.  Simply layer a toasted English muffin with a big slice of fresh Canadian bacon (buy it from a good butcher - not a grocer - the difference is amazing), and a nicely poached or gently panfried egg.  Top with a generous helping of lemony hollandaise sauce.  Garnish with capers, pimento or a slice of black olive.

For a real treat, substitute smoked salmon for the bacon.
