Salmon Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is the quintessential Sunday brunch meal. I never ordered it because I am not a fan of the Canadian bacon. But in a little beach cafe in Sydney, Australia, they serve eggs benedict with smoked salmon instead, where the inspiration for this dish came. 

Now the first time I decided to tackle eggs benedict I was staying over at my parent’s house with Ryan. My mom and I got out all of her recipe books with hollandaise sauce in them and spread them all over the table.  We tried to comparing the minute details for 15 different recipes (I think we chose one by eenie, meenie, miney, mo). The next morning there were 4 of us crowded around the stove using 3 burners all working on a different component of the meal. Let’s just call it organized chaos.
