Ever since I can remember eggs benedict have been my favorite breakfast. I used to make them with my dad on Sunday mornings as they are also my mom’s favorite breakfast. Now I sometimes eat them for dinner too. Still I am not expert when it comes to making hollandaise sauce, if I have to be totally honest when I try to make hollandaise sauce from scratch it usually separates and it’s just a total disaster. But I am not a purist and am not afraid to take some short cuts so for this recipe I used Knorr’s Hollandaise sauce and added my own personal touch.

Back when I was a kid I hated avocados, which now seems crazy to me because they are probably my favorite food in the whole world. Seriously I could eat avocados every single day. So I thought why not combine avocados with my favorite breakfast to create the ultimate breakfast of all time, in my eyes anyway.
