Today is NOT green eggs & ham but IS...
Many people have never tried Eggs Benedict. Maybe that is because of its 'elite' connotation since it was invented at the Waldorf hotel or maybe it is today's high price when purchased in a fine restaurant. On the other hand, some people enjoy Eggs Benedict on a regular basis. To them, it is as common as having a piece of cheesy toast! To those who have never tried Eggs Benedict, here is a little challenge: Take a quick survey. See how many of your friends can even tell you how its made, or what's in it. Or, simply ask them if they know what it takes to make Hollandaise sauce.
