This is a messed up recipe. It is definitely not eggs Benedict which calls for Holandase sauce and this is definitely not Holandase. Also your number of muffins and eggs is way off. Who did the proof reading on this one? Also poached eggs are traditional for eggs Benedict. Three strikes with the wet noodle. I expect more from you. Oh and for all of you who don't know what to do with the milk, you add it with the broth and seasonings to make the cheese sauce. Pretty simple if you think about it. The sauce does taste good if you like cheese sauce.

My questions about the milk were in reference to the Asparagus Eggs Benedict recipe NOT Old Fashioned Eggs Benedict.

This is a rather poorly rendered recipe: "serves 6", "5 cooked eggs" and 4 English muffins which, when sliced, would provide for 8 eggs. I do have a problem figuring how 5 cooked eggs are going to serve 6. Jim B.


I think you're sleepin' on the job--no answer for two weeks about what to do with the milk--except do not cry over it if it's spilt

Please, read the recipe again...: Step 2: Add broth, milk, salt, cayenne, bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes. Is that what you were loookng for, hope I helped you,

What am I supposed to do with the 3 cups of milk?

You don't say when to add the milk, or do you consider that also the broth??

I still don't know what to do with the milk
