plated Eggs Benedict

It’s almost Valentine’s Day weekend! Surprise your love and plan a romantic morning together. A simple and beautiful breakfast to impress is Eggs Benedict. From the soft poached egg to the creamy hollandaise sauce, there’s no going wrong with this recipe. The hollandaise sauce we’re sharing is a lot simpler than most and is completely foolproof. All you need is a food processor and warmed butter. Another great sauce for your Eggs Benedict is a slightly spicy, light tomato sauce.

This luxurious breakfast in bed is just the start to the rest of your romantic day. Perhaps the grand finale is taking your sweetheart to Coho Restaurant for their fantastic Valentine’s feast? Dine in or take the romance home to enjoy. Explore the menu here.
