Scrambled Eggs Benedict

This is a bit of a “Benedict” stretch”

Are you sitting with your morning pot of tea or cup of coffee pondering what you were going to throw together for breakfast.

Hollandaise has never  been my friend. It seems like it either curdles or I have it too cold to serve.  This time I decided this was going to be a quick breakfast.
