Over the years, I have enjoyed a casual breakfast on Mother’s Day, whether the boys prepare it or I do, really doesn’t matter, but we always like keeping it simple. Eggs Benedict is a dish that I have not tried before today, and honestly, I really didn’t think I would like it. So I was pleasantly surprised when I cut into these Eggs Benedict Biscuit Cups and they were delicious!
There are a few short cuts in this recipe making it simple enough for hubby or the kids to make. The hardest part was the poached eggs, and although they are easy to cook, they were a bit tricky to remove from the pan in one piece.
While you can certainly make homemade Hollandaise sauce, I have not attempted that yet, so this time I used Knorr Sauce Mix and it worked beautifully, and for only $1.25 at Walmart, it fit perfectly into the budget as well.
We paired the Eggs Benedict Biscuit Cups with Fresh Fruit Salad, Coffee, Juice and Banana Split Dessert for a special treat after our Mother’s Day Brunch. Walmart has a large selection of fruit right now, including the pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries we used in the Fruit Salad.
What do you like serving for Mother’s Day Brunch? Stay tuned for more recipes tomorrow.
