Awww…honey! What a fabulous time to promote honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener, bee culture, as well as spotlighting the beekeeping industry. September is National Honey Month and a perfect time to celebrate HONEY and the health benefits that come with it!

From the kitchen of the National Honey Board, we are featuring this buzz-worthy recipe, Baked Honey Bacon Benedict. What a honey-licious way to start your day!


YIELD: Serves 6-8
4 tablespoons butter
1 package English muffins split
1 lb. thick bacon
1/4 cup honey
1 dozen eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
For Hollandaise:
2 packages hollandaise sauce
2 cups 2% milk
1 stick butter
Fresh parsley or chives and paprika for garnish

Preheat oven to 350Β°

Spread each muffin half with butter and bake for 10 minutes on a sheet pan, set aside.

Spread the bacon out on a parchment lined sheet pan and drizzle with the honey. Bake for 20-25 minutes turning once. Remove each piece of bacon to a cooling rack to drain and cool. Cut each piece of bacon in half.

Prepare the hollandaise sauce according to the package directions and keep warm.

Place the muffin halves on a sheet pan and evenly divide the bacon over each muffin. Gently break one egg over each muffin half and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs a cooked to your preference.

Serves immediately topped with warm hollandaise and garnished with fresh herbs and a sprinkle of paprika.

Tip: You can use the traditional method of poaching the eggs if you prefer, but this method of baking the eggs is much easier and great for entertaining.

  1. Oh, how yummy! 🍯🍯🍯 Honey can make anything taste good Phil. I never tried it on a peanut butter sandwich though. I do like peanut butter and banana sandwiches. I must try it with honey of course. Why not right??? 🀩😁😍 Enjoy the rest of your evening my friend. πŸŒ™

  2. That would be good, no doubt about it 🍯 Just remember that honey is less like M&M’s and more like ink – if you get it on your hands, it gets all over everything. Therein, I certainly wouldn’t recommend attempting to do hand paintings with honey (unless you’re really hungry) πŸ˜‚πŸ€ͺ Thank you dear Kym & have a great day! 😍🌞🌺
