It is officially Easter Brunch Week! For the next week I am teaming with a troop of blogger friends to share our best brunch recipes to inspire your Holiday menu! We are working with an awesome team of sponsors, and I can't wait to share a load of tasty recipes with all of you.
There is an amazing giveaway, sponsored by Eggland's Best, GROSCHE International, Hamilton Beach, Nordic Ware, Rhodes Bread, Silpat, Stonyfield and Wewalka. You can read more about these awesome sponsors HERE.
Today, I am sharing my recipe for Eggs Benedict Waffles. I am a lover of all thing eggs benedict, and wanted to shake my traditional recipe using english muffins and canadian bacon. These waffles use a traditional base, but I add a lean chopped ham and fresh chopped chives to create a savory waffle. Topped with poached eggs, and a traditional creamy hollandaise make this a breakfast that everyone won't be able to stop talking about.
Hamilton Beach sent me the Removable Grid Belgian Waffle Maker and 7 Egg Cooker with Built-In Timer and Poaching Tray Black. I love the ease of these products.
The waffle maker has a feature allowing it to flip. It also features nonstick, removable plates; adjustable browning control for your preferred finish; and easy to clean grids and drip tray.
The egg cooker takes the guesswork out of making hard, medium, and soft-boiled eggs and cook perfect poached eggs every time with the Hamilton Beach Egg Cooker. The included water measuring cup with easy-to-read markings makes it simple to cook eggs to your desired hardness every time. The removable egg tray cooks up to 7 eggs, while the egg poaching tray lets you poach up to three eggs at a time, all with the touch of a button.
There is no eggs benedict without eggs! Eggland's Best provided bloggers with their products, and they are absolutely delicious eggs! Eggland's Best has all-vegetarian feed for the hens made of healthy grains and other nutritious ingredients. Eggland’s Best eggs have 25% less saturated, 6 times more vitamin D and are only 60 calories when compared to ordinary eggs.
These waffles are so good! The ham and chives make a perfect vehicle to soak up all the yummy egg yolks and hollandaise sauce. I love to sprinkle a few extra chives on top for even more herby flavor.
