    My Sunday morning go to (not every week) is to come up with variations on the Eggs Benedict/McMuffin spectrum.

    Oh sometimes I'll just scramble stuff together and stuff them in a pita, but there is something wonderful about stacking things on an English muffin.

    Hollandaise is too much trouble for one, so I experiment with other sauce or rich layers. A favorite is breakfast sausage patty, Merkts cheese spread and some sauteed lacinato kale (one of the things I try to always grow in the garden).

    Today I may have hit on a new champion.
    Bottom to top:
    English muffin
    Muhamarra (roasted pepper/walnut dip)
    Kale sauteed with a little crushed red pepper and wilted with a splash of red vinegar
    Egg fried over medium
    A little crumbled feta

    It wasn't very photogenic, but man was that good.

    My brother called my attention recently to frozen pork sausage patties at Walmart. Can't say I've seen them (sandwich sized, that is) anywhere else. Can't say anything bad about them, really. English muffin or croissant or white bread, fried egg, sausage patty, slice of cheese, butter or mayo or ketchup, whatever you like; wouldn't eat it every day, but Saturday or Sunday morning before a bunch of house/yard work, I sure would.

    Had one recently that was a Southern Benedict -- fried green tomatoes (in place of muffin), ham, pimento cheese, spinach, poached egg, hollandaise. Grits on the side. Yummy.

    Also, in Key West, had one that had a thick slice of lobster, grilled in butter, on top of the English muffin, in lieu of pork product, but otherwise all the usual suspects. Also yummy.

    As an FYI, if you haven't already tried it, Libanais makes a delicious muhaamarra mana'esh (flatbread), so as a quick cheat, a fry an egg and toss it on top.

    I should probably link some of the other favorites I've had on my travels:
    Minneapolis: Cajun Benedict with collards
    Santa Fe: Brisket Benedict
