Cheese in your Eggs Benedict: Yea or Nay!


Eggs Benedict is back bacon, a poched egg and Hollandaise sauce on an English muffin. That's it. It's a perfect dish and yet a lot of restaurants insist on adding cheese to it. I find cheese denatures the whole thing. Especially when it's that yucky tangy orange processed crap. It screws up that taste and texture and makes it somehow seem cheap. Of course, many disagree with me and that's why many restaurateurs use cheese as a default ingredient.

So, what say ye?
