Double-Cheese Eggs Benedict

"Making breakfast is my favorite part of running a bed-and-breakfast," explains Megan Hakes of Wellsville, Pennsylvania. "Returning guests often request this poached egg dish." The eggs are served over English muffins and Canadian bacon then topped with a simple sauce. —Megan Hakes, Wellsville, Pennsylvania
