A Vegetarian Eggs Benedict with a Spinach-Hollandaise Sauce
I have frequently shared kitchens with vegetarian roommates and friends. While I do eat meat, I try to be sensitive to those who do not. One happy merging of meat-eating and non-meat eating friends was a weekly Sunday brunch of Eggs Benedict. The meat eaters would layer ham or sausage--my preference--onto their English muffins. The non-meat eaters would layer a slab of Monterey Jack cheese instead. Everyone sat down to eat together.
I woke up the other morning with a hankering for Eggs Benedict, but wondering how it would be to add some of my CSA farm share spinach to the sauce Hollandaise.

I didn't have any sausage handy, having used it up on this pizza. I also didn't have any Monterey Jack cheese. However, I did have Icelandic School cheese. (I can hear you now, "Wait, what? Icelandic School cheese? Who keeps that in the fridge?" To you I ask--where else would you keep it?). My kids have loved Icelandic School cheese for years, it's very mild, and my folks brought some back from a trip recently. So I have Icelandic School cheese in my fridge, but you can use Monterey Jack if you aren't planning a trip to Iceland any time soon.
