Eggs, one of nature's most nutritious foods


We should include eggs as part of our diet because they contain lots of protein, vitamins, minerals and other good elements and only 70 calories. They also contain cholesterol, so, be careful and eat just a few eggs a week.

There are hundreds of ways to prepare eggs.


EGGS BENNEDICT

4 poached eggs
4 English muffins
4 slices of Canadian bacon or ham
Hollandaise sauce
Butter

Split, toast and butter the English muffins. Fry the Canadian bacon or if using ham grill it for a few minutes on both sides. Place the bacon or ham on the English muffin, then the egg and top with Hollandaise sauce. Serve with hash brown potatoes.


HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

1/3 cup of butter,
the juice of half a lemon
2 egg yolks
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream the butter, add the egg yolks one by one; then the lemon juice, cayenne pepper and salt, beating all thoroughly; place the bowl with the mixture in a saucepan of boiling water; beat with an egg-beater until it begins to thicken, about one minute; then add the 1/2 cup of  boiling water, beating all the time; stir until it begins to thicken like soft custard; stir a few minutes after removing from the stove; be careful not to cook it too long.
