NotesThis was my Grandfather's recipe. I learned when I was young, though it will take a lifetime to perfect. Eggs Benedict was a tradition in my family, and I am happy to continue following in his footsteps. I make it for my family and friends, and believe it is a great way to woo a newcomer in the fold.
