I made this using ingredients I had on hand. I added sliced roma tomatoes and did one muffin with 1 1/2 slices of regular bacon and the other with Canadian. After toasting the muffins I topped with shredded cheddar and nuked for 30 seconds to melt the cheese. Then I added the meat, tomatoes, eggs and more cheese. Topped as directed with salsa, olives and green onions. Cilantro would have added more flavor but I didn't have any. GREAT result!
Salsa Verde Eggs Benedict
This Mexican-inspired version of a breakfast favorite, created by Terri Bryant, of Dayton, Nevada, uses fresh salsa instead of the traditional, heavy Hollandaise sauce. Serve with a side of refried beans.
