Kego’s Benedict

When I go out to brunch with friends, it’s no mystery what I’m going to order. Ask any of my friends and they will tell you I am going order the Eggs Benedict, my favorite thing to eat on a Sunday.  From the oozing Hollandase sauce to the popping of the egg yolk, I can easily say this is one of my favorite recipes. May I introduce you to Kego’s Benedict, my  take on the Eggs Benedict.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
