Breakfast is an important and delicious meal that few of us make the proper time for.

However, when I do have the time to treat myself to a scrumptious morning meal, I don’t want to eat the same boring old dish. That’s why I love new and exciting breakfast recipes — like this egg-in-a-hole grilled cheese sandwich!

In an exclusive video below, we put a spin on one of the most classic egg breakfast dishes: eggs Benedict.

It takes cues from the caprese salad, an simple Italian salad with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil.

This recipe still keeps true to how eggs Benedict are usually enjoyed, and calls for a simple hollandaise sauce, which can be whipped up with just three ingredients.
