This recipe is simple, and you can even simplify it even more, if you like. Or build in more homemade items, if that makes you happy. But don't skimp on the hollandaise sauce, and don't skip the cornbread or the pico de gallo.

Okay, I lied...make it exactly like I tell you. Don't mess with something good until you've tried it this way first!

My secret...hot sauce! In the Hollandaise sauce. Hot sauce and Lime make it kicking awesome in a totally kicking way! Taste buds, on full alert!


  • Cornbread (this recipe for Tex Mex cornbread is soooooo simple. And perfect for this eggs benedict variation!)
  • Canadian Bacon or Ham slices (I rub mine with hot sauce, cilantro, and salt & pepper)
  • Eggs
  • my Lime Habanero Hollandaise sauce (recipe below)
  • Pico de Gallo or Salsa (make your own if you like!)
  • green onions (optional) (sliced)

Directions for this Tex Mex Eggs Benedict variation:

  1. Make (or buy) your cornbread ahead of time. We suggest our easy tex mex cornbread.
  2. Rub the spices into your slices of ham. Saute on a frying pan until browned on both sides (medium heat for about 30 sec on each side). Set aside.
  3. Create your habanero hollandaise sauce.
  4. Poach your egg(s).

    tip: if you swirl your boiling water around and around, drop your egg in, and then swirl it the other way a couple of times you won't get "legs" on your eggs

  5. Build your Tex Mex Eggs Benedict: cornbread, ham, eggs, hollandaise sauce, pico de gallo, green onions.

    I've never met a Benedict I didn't like, and I am just loving all the Benedict variations that are exploding all over! This one looks delicious, and the cornbread base on this would definitely be a winner for me. (If you are interested, I have a good tutorial on how to make perfectly poaching eggs on my blog.)

  2. Eggs benedict is absolutely obsession worthy! Seriously. You have made a wise decision :)

  3. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

    I am totally obsessed with eggs benedict these days so this is absolutely being made soon!

  4. Thanks, Kristen! It really is fabulous. Takes a little time...that's true, so we don't make them all that often. But when we do...the day is made!

  5. Kristen @ A Mind Full Mom

    I can not tell you how in love I am with this recipe. Looks incredible!

  6. Marisa Franca @ All Our Way

    You had me at habanero {sigh - of longing} I love eggs -- I'd have them morning, noon and night! There are so many ways to make them. I am definitely making this sauce -yummy! We limit our breakfast eggs to Sunday -- sometimes I get so excited about having the eggs I forget to take my vitamins. Sundays are special :-)
