CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Eggs Bene-chick
Yeah, we know you probably swore off Eggs Benedict a long time ago. Along
with onion rings. And fries. And Fettuccine Alfredo. But life isn't fun without
great, decadent food. So tomorrow morning, treat yourself to HG's Eggs
1/2 Thomas' Light Multi Grain English Muffin (or half of another light english
1 large egg
1 slice lean ham
1 tbsp. fat-free mayonnaise
1 tsp. Hellmann's/ Best Foods Dijonnaise
1 tsp. Brummel & Brown Spread (or another reduced calorie buttery
1 tsp. lemon yogurt
Prepare sauce by stirring to combine B&B spread, mayo, yogurt and
Dijonnaise; set aside. Crack egg gently into a small cup or dish. Fill a
medium-sized pot with 2 inches of water, and bring water to a boil. Once
boiling, lower temperature until a steady and consistent, but VERY low, boil is
reached. Gently pour in the egg and allow to cook for 3 - 5 minutes (3 for a
runnier egg, 5 for very firm), or until egg white is mostly opaque. Carefully
remove egg by sliding a spatula underneath it and placing it on a plate. Use a
paper towel to soak up any excess water. Toast muffin half and heat ham if
desired. Heat sauce in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds and stir
(add a little water if you prefer a thinner sauce). Top muffin with ham and
egg, and then cover with sauce. Enjoy! Serves 1.

Eggs Benedict, Average
For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Eggs Benedict consists of a
beauteous poached egg on a crusty english muffin topped with warm
canadian bacon (aka ham), all smothered in rich, creamy hollandaise sauce.
While almost too delicious to imagine, it's not worth the scary-high fat and
calorie counts. FYI -- most restaurants serve up a nearly 1,000-cal double
portion of this fatty b-fast meal. Luckily, there's a cure for this insanity: HG's
very own Eggs Bene-chick. Yes!!!
