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.
