Eggs Benedict Bake
Ingredients
  • 1  teaspoon  vinegar
  • 8  eggs
  • 4  English muffins, split
  • 1/3  cup  flavored semisoft cheese, such as pepper, garlic and herb, garden vegetable, or toasted onion
  • 8  thin slices  cooked ham (12 ounces)
  • 16  large  fresh basil, spinach, or arugula leaves
  • 8  thin  slices tomato
  • 1  recipe  Mock Hollandaise Sauce
  •  Paprika (optional)
  •  Fresh snipped basil (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat broiler. Lightly grease a large skillet. Add enough water to the skillet to fill half full. Add vinegar. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat to simmering (bubbles should begin to break the surface of the water). Break one of the eggs into a measuring cup. Holding the lip of the cup as close to the water as possible, carefully slip egg into simmering water. Repeat with remaining eggs, allowing each egg an equal amount of space.

2. Simmer eggs, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until the whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs to a plate.

3. Meanwhile, place muffin halves, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat about 2 minutes or until toasted; cool.

4. Grease a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Spread the cut side of each muffin half with about 2 teaspoons of the semisoft cheese. Place muffin halves, cheese sides up, in prepared dish. Top each with a slice of ham, folding or cutting it to fit. Top each ham slice with two basil leaves and one tomato slice.

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Top each tomato slice with one cooked egg. Spoon Mock Hollandaise Sauce over eggs. Bake, covered, about 25 minutes or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with paprika and/or snipped basil.
