  4. Heat up 12 slices Canadian bacon in microwave approximately 1 minute, remove and pat dry with paper towel to absorb moisture and cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. Toast and butter three English muffins. 
  6. Slice the avocado or cantaloupe, if serving as a side.
  7. Set plates with two buttered English muffins on each, next add two or three slices of Canadian bacon on top of each muffin depending upon thickness of bacon, one egg per each muffin and salt and pepper. If serving with sliced avocado, add to plate and salt and pepper.
  8. Drizzle Hollandaise sauce over Eggs Benedict and Avocados, and sprinkle with paprika. 

Great served with slices of cantaloupe or avocado (drizzled with Hollandaise sauce) on the side.  Great recipe for brunch – make in advance and place in a lightly buttered warming tray for serving.

This is my quick version of Eggs Benedict. Earl always made is own Hollandaise Sauce and was a great chef. To celebrate my birthday and the news of being pregnant with my first daughter, Earl served this dish for brunch!
