This recipe is excellent. I made this because I had leftover cornbread and avocado on hand. I will certainly make this again and would serve to guests; it comes out like something you would get in a good restaurant, but it's easy to make. Try it!
Southwest Eggs Benedict
Notes: Cook the eggs as you like - poached, fried, scrambled. Serve with hot black beans and crisp bacon. If you make cornbread with a mix, use a 14- to 15-ounce package.
