Happy New Year, Mystery Lovers! I hope everyone is staying warm and taking time to curl up with a good cozy mystery. If you’re looking for a new series, you might even enjoy my Cackleberry Club Mysteries.
In Eggs Benedict Arnold, the second in the series, café owners Suzanne, Toni, and Petra have lost their husbands and found independence in each other – as well as a life raft of support and inspiration. But when the local mortician is found dead on his own slab, who would have guessed these three women would be working a double shift as amateur sleuths?
Halfway between a cozy and a thriller (a thrillzy?), Eggs Benedict Arnold delivers a double dose of smart, slightly crazy women, pulse-pounding action, recipes, knitting, and a dash of spirituality. The book is also affordably priced at $7.99 and just spent two weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List!
Eggs Benedict Arnold is definitely a fun, fast-paced culinary read. Plus you’ll love Cackleberry Club recipes such as Brown Sugar Meatloaf, Cheddar Cheese Biscuits, and Upside Down French Toast. And that special recipe for Eggs Benedict Arnold? Here it is!
Eggs Benedict Arnold
4 strips thick-cut bacon
2 eggs, poached
English muffin, toasted
English Cheddar, ¼ cup shredded
Hollandaise sauce (jar or made from scratch)
Using an oven-safe plate or shallow bowl, place strips of fried, crispy bacon on top of open-face toasted English muffin. Add poached eggs and top with Hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle on English cheddar cheese and toast under broiler for about 45 seconds. Top with fresh, chopped parsley for garnish. Note: To make your Eggs Benedict Arnold even more British, substitute bangers (British sausages) for the bacon.
