What does the king of cooking blindly do when he’s in a hurry to get his wife out the door with a full stomach but finds that everyone, including himself, is tired of the “same-old-same-old?” Well, he looks in the fridge and the freezer, smiles and rearranges a classic southern dish for a bit more of an upscale feel. Whether it’s early and you’re headed for work or a lazy Sunday at home, this dish is sure to help you greet the day with a smile, and it can be on a plate in less than 20 minutes!
I suppose it could be called a poor man’s Eggs Benedict, but that title is already held by the egg McMuffin, so I decided to name it after my wife, using her maiden name.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
I would have added a bit of cheese on top of the hash browns before topping with the ham.
Note: the serve immediately part is not a joke. The cheese sauce as listed sets very quickly and loses any velvety appeal that it had when it was fresh and the hash browns will steam under all that cheesy goodness and lose their crisp texture, which is essential for good contrast.
Wow.. that’s a great idea and a fantastic recipe!
Unfortunately, we don’t eat breakfast during the week.. we’re the type that fills up on coffee and maybe a yogurt or banana grabbed as we run out the door. Occasionally though, we do breakfast on lazy Sunday mornings.. this will be the next breakfast we have, for sure. =)
I love Eggs benedict but I agree that it needs potatoes to jazz it up! I love your twist on this classic!
I hope you enjoy, it was one of those “tada” moments, and my wife and I just love it.
Thanks and Welcome! I’ve heard your name about, but to be honest, had never stopped by your blog before today. I’ll be remedying that!
Sounds like you’ve got a deffinate “Bite Me”. Good work!
The recipe looks promising, the presentation is great. This breakfast meal is great man. Thanks for sharing the recipe of this.
