I made these smoked salmon eggs benedict a couple of weeks ago and it has been one of the best homemade breakfasts that I’ve had in a while. The flavors were wonderfully balanced from the salty smoked salmon to the bright hollandaise flavors and the fresh avocado slices. Plus they’re a cinch to whip up, making it a perfect breakfast/brunch dish when you have guests over!

    Made this for my hubby’s birthday lunch! Amazing! Considering he is the chef in the family, I did a great job 🙂 Only thing I did differently, was use a package Hollandaise sauce mix. Also, added a side of asparagus! sooo good! Thanks!
