Today I had for the very first time in my life eggs benedict! Yes, I have never had them before at all! It would actually not be too weird as they are not something that people eat here in Germany. But I have lived a whole year in the US and I have never had them EVER!
I have to admit though that I have heard about them - even had seen recipes. I actually never wanted to try them. I love eggs and I am always looking forward to Sunday for that is the day I will have my breakfast egg. But poached eggs with sauce hollandaise? I have had poached eggs. I have had sauce hollandaise. I have had bacon. But I could simply not imagine that all of this would go together well. But when I saw this post on Simply Recipes about eggs benedict I thought - that's it. You have to try this! You just have to have them at least once - just to know how they are.
So my husband made them for me today for breakfast ... and BOY was I surprised! I can not believe I missed out on that for 31 years! If I just would have known! If somebody would have told me! I LOVE them! Well, if someone would have told me I probably would have not believed him anyway ... but all of these things together ... YUM! After I had finished my first one my husband had to make me a second one! Then we were out of bacon. Which was probably good cause otherwise I would have been filled up for the whole day ...
So this was the first time, but DEFINITELY not the last!
