Artichoke & Spinach Eggs Benedict

45 min

This recipe is presented by Eggland’s Best Eggs Benedict, a brunch favorite, fuses with the popular appetizer of spinach-and-artichoke dip for a special, decadent morning-style meal. When choosing an artichoke, look for tightly packed leaves. A few black spots are fine because the artichoke has an enzyme that causes blackening as soon as it makes contact with air.

Easy Olive Oil Pancakes

A favorite pancake recipe of mine. This recipe went through vigorous testing to create an amazingly fluffy and light pancake. The olive oil addition is what creates such a moist cake. Olive oil can be replaced by melted butter, or even browned melted butter, for a richer flavor. Add fresh fruit or citrus zest to your completed batter to create other versions of this beauty.
