  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Sweet potatoes are used for the base instead of a traditional English muffin. Use a well-sharpened knife to cut a thick slice of sweet potato and then place it in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes.
  3. Cook the Canadian bacon for about a minute on each side in a pan on medium heat. Set aside.
  4. Bring a pot of water to a simmer. Create a vortex with a spoon and crack and poach the eggs for 3-4 minutes. Remove the eggs from the pot and place in a bowl.
  5. Add the egg yolks, lemon juice, dijon, salt and cayenne pepper to a blender and blend them. Then slowly pour in the hot butter with the blender on medium high, until you've fully emulsified the sauce. Pour into a small bowl.
  6. Once the potatoes have cooked, add to a plate and top with canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a drizzle of hollandaise sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately!
