throwback thursday.. eggs benedict


for throwback thursday i thought i would bring back from the archives one of my all time favorite brunch dishes.. eggs benedict.. i have passed the love onto shelby, but she likes to order it with a side of avocado which sounds good if your not allergic to avocado like me, but you might not be, so i say try it.. she recommends it.. i was really happy with the results of this recipe as daunting as the recipes seems.. it's actually fairly easy and the results amazing, so i hope you will try it.. it's so worth it..

4 peices of canadian bacon {or crag legs, lobster tail or maybe crab cakes} *i had left over crablegs from a dinner the night before which is why the picture has crab legs*
