Eggs Florentine with Waffles and Herbed Hollandaise

I usually make breakfast every weekend for my sweetheart.  During the work week, we both just tend to ourselves.  But on the weekend, I try to make a real breakfast and often he even gets it served on a tray in bed.  It's just a little way of saying "I love you and appreciate all you do for me."  This breakfast is delicious.  I would recommend making your waffles first, keeping them warm in the oven while you complete the rest of the recipe.  I have never made hollandaise sauce with an immersion blender but it was super easy with great results.  If you don't have an immersion blender just use a regular blender.

You can make any homemade waffles you like, or even use toaster waffles if you don't have a waffle iron.
For the waffles you will need:

4 homemade waffles
1/2# fresh spinach
4 slices Canadian bacon or ham
4 poached or fried eggs, you choice
1 t. olive oil

Put the olive oil in the skillet, heat over medium.. then add the spinach and cook until the spinach wilts.  Remove from the pan.  Warm the ham or Canadian bacon.
On a serving plate place one whole waffle, spoon some of the spinach on top, then the ham or Canadian bacon.  
Fry or poach an egg or two and place on top of the ham.


2 egg yolks
1 T. lemon juice
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
8 T. melted butter

Put the egg yolks, lemon juice and parsley in the bottom of a small deep bowl (or in the blender).  Slow drizzle the melted butter in mixing with the immersion blender (Or on low in your blender).

Drizzle the sauce on top of the eggs and serve.
