Happy National Eggs Benedict Day
I think it is fair to say Mr. ink and I are quite passionate about Eggs Benedict and all of it's magnificent variations (Eggs Blackstone, Eggs Florentine and Eggs Montreal). Once at brunch, after we had each ordered Eggs Benedict, the server sheepishly came back to tell us they were out of hollandaise sauce and we would need to choose something else off the menu. Dumbfounded, we paid for our coffee and went to the grocery store because as Mr. ink pointed out, "Hollandaise is basically just egg yolks, butter, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne and salt. Every kitchen should always be stocked with those ingredients."
