Dempster's Eggs Benedict Recipe and CONTEST (~OVER~)!

One of my favourite breakfasts of all time is Eggs Benedict!  It is such a favourite, that my husband automatically orders it for me whenever we're at a restaurant that serves it.  Why is it my go-to meal, you may wonder?  Simply because it combines everything that I enjoy in a breakfast or brunch: poached eggs, cooked ham, hollandaise sauce, and hot toasted English Muffins!  I love how the English Muffins sop up the burst poached eggs and the hollandaise sauce!

Did you know that Dempster's has just launched their new English Muffins!  They offer 3 kinds: Plain, Cinnamon & Raisin, and 100% Whole Wheat!  I prefer the traditional or 100% Whole Wheat for my Eggs Benedict recipe!  Good places to find Dempster's English Muffins are at Wal-Mart, Sobeys, Longos, Food Basics, Price Chopper, Metro, IGA, Freshco and Super C stores in the bakery section.  (Ontario and Quebec.)
I love Demspter's products, and their English Muffins are no exception to the rule!  They are very easy to make in the toaster, and I love how melted butter catches in their nooks and crannies.  I like to toast them until they are still soft inside and slightly crisp on the outside.  I find them quite tasty, and like that they are baked fresh each day.
Eggs  Benedict Recipe with Dempster's English Muffins!
Ingredients:
6 slices of ham
1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
3 Dempster's plain (or 100% Whole Wheat) English Muffins, sliced and nicely toasted
6 large or extra large eggs

Hollandaise Sauce:
90 grams of butter
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon of cold water
Salt
Pepper
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

How To:
1.Toast the Dempster's English Muffins.
2.Saute all ham slices in the butter for 2 minutes or until done.
3.(Optional: pour the melted butter used to saute the ham, over the Dempster's English Muffins.)
4.Arrange the sauted ham on the Dempster's English Muffins.
5.Poach the eggs in salted water, and let simmer in a frying pan.  Ladle the water over the eggs.  When eggs are firm, lift out and drain excess water from eggs.  Place one egg on top of the ham layer.
6.Make the Hollandaise Sauce:  Melt the butter and add all the lemon juice.
7.Put the egg yolk and water together in either a glass or metal bowl, sitting IN a pan of hot water on a low heat.  Whisk mixture while pouring in the melted butter mixture.
8.Whisk yolk mixture vigorously as the mixture cools down.  In about 5 minutes, it will thicken and double.
9.Carefully pour the Hollondaise Sauce over the poached egg layer.
10.Serve hot and ENJOY!
