The EFO wants to bring families back to the table for the most important meal of the day and every day should start with some quality family time and a healthy breakfast made with Ontario eggs.
Looking for a more Canadian dish? Let your Canadian spirit shine through by preparing EFO’s spin on Eggs Benedict. This recipe features maple syrup and Montreal-smoked meat, two well-loved Canadian ingredients. Canadiana Eggs Benedict is quick and easy to make, so you won’t miss a moment of the action.
Canadiana Eggs Benedict
With the distinct flavour of Montreal smoked meat, this eggs benedict will be a breakfast or
brunch favourite you will love to enjoy at home.
1 tbsp (15 mL) white vinegar
6 ozs (180 g) shaved Montreal smoked meat
2 English muffins, split and toasted
Maple Hollandaise Sauce:
¼ cup (60 mL) butter
¼ tbsp (15 mL) pure maple syrup
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
Garnish: pinch of smoked paprika (optional)
In a small skillet, warm smoked meat over medium heat until fragrant; keep warm.
Maple Hollandaise Sauce: Using a small pan, melt butter over low heat. In a small bowl, whisk
together 2 eggs, maple syrup and lemon juice until frothy. Slowly add egg mixture into melted
butter and whisk gently for about 6 minutes (or until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a
spoon) over low heat. Remove from heat and keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a large shallow saucepan filled halfway with water, add 1 tbsp (15 mL) white
vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat so water is simmering.
Crack each egg to be poached into a small bowl or ramekin to gently slip into simmering water.
Poach for about for 3 to 5 minutes or until white is set and yolk is cooked as desired.
Top English muffin halves with warmed smoked meat. Using a slotted spoon, remove poached
eggs from water and place on top of smoked meat. Spoon Maple Hollandaise sauce over top of
each egg. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, if desired.
Regular Hollandaise Sauce: Omit maple syrup and add 1 tbsp (15 mL) of water.
Peameal Bacon Eggs Benedict: Omit Montreal smoked meat and substitute 4 slices
cooked peameal bacon and top each English muffin half. Top with poached egg. Whisk
in 1 tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard into the Hollandaise sauce to serve.
To thicken the hollandaise sauce, simply heat and stir for 1-2 minutes longer until the sauce
thickens to your desired consistency. Keep in mind that the maple flavour will decrease the
longer you cook the sauce, so add more to taste.

My life recently took a turn. I had been working in the field I had always wanted to, in the type of position I had always wanted. But then things changed. Sometimes, even when things seem on paper that it would be perfect, it isn’t and you need to re-evaluate your future goals. Don’t be afraid to say that something isn’t right for you. Don’t let stress eat away at you. Make sure people treat you properly. I continue to know where I thrive and what motivates me to work hard for a purpose. Don’t ever let someone make you feel as if you are not valued because YOU are and make sure you are passionate in your cause. Be yourself and do what you feel is best for you, and not someone else.
I recently left my job and I am extremely happy. I am working on future possibilities and very excited about what will come.
Be true to you, know that you are AWESOME even if you have a bad day and do not EVER doubt yourself!
Work hard, love hard, and play hard!
