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.

  • Yield: Serves 2
  • Total: 25 Minutes


  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 English muffins, split and toasted
  • 2 teaspoons butter

  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup fresh salsa verde
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives

1. Bring vinegar and 1 qt. water to a simmer in a pan over medium heat.
