Eggs benedict represents everything we should not be eating in the mornings. It's made with Canadian bacon, eggs and topped with a buttery, rich hollandaise sauce; and it's one of the best-tasting dishes you can find on the breakfast menu. 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, and swapping the English muffin for a biscuit makes it even more decadent. Whichever direction you choose to go, you can't go wrong with these 10 eggs benedict recipes.
