Sunday Eggs Benedict
... or something else.
Eggs Benedict (also called by the slang term "Eggs Benny") is a traditional American breakfast or brunch dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin each of which is topped with Canadian bacon, ham or sometimes bacon, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce. The dish was first popularized in New York City.
