Easy Eggs Benedict Fusion Style

Easy Eggs Benedict Fusion Style or rather Wordsmith Kaur’s Jugaadu Style! The DIL wanted Eggs Benedict on her birthday and naturally, I wasn’t going to disappoint her in spite of the lockdown. The real Eggs Benedict has hot buttered English muffins, bacon, and poached eggs topped with a liberal drizzle of hollandaise sauce.

Eggs Benedict is decadence overloaded and a star at a brunch table. I knew I had to try it out my way as I didn’t have most of the ingredients.

What goes in Easy Eggs Benedict Fusion Style

Actually, I had no access to English Muffins so I used a burger bun and made French toast out of it. Then, Bacon wasn’t available, so I boiled and shredded chicken and tossed it in butter. Next, I poached the eggs and finally, served it with kale leaves and cherry tomatoes from my garden. Believe it or not, I have never poached an egg before! Then I just stacked everything up with a cheese slice thrown in and sprinkled some herbs, salt and pepper.

Eggs are very versatile. Read more about them @ All About Eggs.

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!
