"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
The key to this recipe is doing your prep work and being organized so it will all come out hot and ready to serve at the same time.

1. Make your hollandaise sauce and cover well to keep hot. (See Blender Hollandaise Sauce or buy pre-made)
2.Splash a bit of white vinegar into a large pot of water and bring to a boil
3. While water is coming to a boil, toast muffins
and put Canadian bacon/ham into microwave to heat.
4. Crack eggs into a cup 1 at a time
5. Slowly slide eggs into the boiling water one at a time--its usually fine to do 3-4 eggs in boiler at a time and cook for 2-3 minutes.
6. When they are ready, remove them with a slotted spoon to drain well.

Assemble as follows
1. Put heated English Muffin on plate
2.Place a slice of Canadian bacon/ham on top of muffin
3. gently place your egg on top of the bacon.
4. spoon hollandaise sauce on top
5. sprinkle with paprika

I usually place two servings on each plate..because that's what they do at Brennan's.

This is a wonderful way to start New Year's Day. Serve it with a pretty fruit salad, fresh coffee, and OJ served in wine or champagne glasses.
