Poor Man's Eggs Benedict Sans Sauce

“I first came across this about 45 yrs ago in some woman's magazine. It was listed as a sort of "poor man's" Eggs Benedict, and included a sauce to top all. The amounts you use are dependent on your pesonal taste and how many people you are feeding. However, I was too impatient to take the time to make the sauce, and just enjoyed the dish so much without it, I never bothered to try it with the sauce! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you feel the need for a sauce try the one from Cookiedog's Instead of Eggs Benedict. I've added it as a note to my recipe for those times I want a quick sauce.”

  1. I always keep a container of deviled ham mixed with mayo in the fridge.
  2. The proportion for the mix are up to your taste.
  3. I use about 1 heaping tablesoon for each 4.25 oz can of Underwood deviled ham.
