The 12 Books of Christmas Day 8

And the 8th winner in The 12 Books of Christmas is...


Congrats, Bonnie! I'll be in touch about claiming your prize!

And now for another delicious holiday recipe from author Kathy Harris, who is graciously giving away a copy of The Road to Mercy (read the description HERE) in the 12 Books of Christmas.

Kathy says:

Here is a quick and easy gourmet recipe for Christmas or New Year’s brunch . . .

Writers and readers alike all share in a lack of time during the holidays—often with the need to entertain or contribute to holiday meals—so it’s fun to discover a recipe that tastes 100% gourmet but is quick and easy to prepare. True Eggs Benedict is smothered in Hollandaise Sauce, but this version substitutes Havarti cheese with Dill. I make mine vegetarian, without the Canadian bacon, and use gluten free products, but you can tweak this basic recipe per your personal preferences.

Simply & Delicious “Almost Eggs Benedict”

Ingredients (with recommended brands for the gluten free version)

Food for Life Multi-Seed Gluten
Free English Muffins

Good Food Made Simple Egg White Patties or poached eggs

Boar’s Head Havarti cheese with Dill, in thin slices

Canadian bacon slices, optional

Salt &pepper to taste, optional


Per serving, split an English muffin and toast. In the meantime, cook one egg or egg white. If using Canadian bacon, warm a slice in the microwave or skillet.

If using the bacon, place a slice onto one half of the toasted English muffin. Top with egg and then 1-2 slices of cheese. (Lightly season with salt and pepper; this is optional–I don’t use either.) Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds to melt cheese. Top with remaining toasted muffin. Serve hot.
