Tofu Benny

Make it this weekend!  So sinfully delicious.  If you're heart set on making it helthier, add some spinach and call it dame Florence.  I myself, much much prefer basic Benny.   But to each his own.  I used Kate's recipe for mock-hollandaise.  I wholeheartedly recommend!  The only other thing I'll add is get Soy Boy Smoked Tofu if possible.  This tofu is incredible.  It's got a great smoky flavor and saves you the time of draining and marinating the basic stuff.  For the faux ham I used Tofurky brand, but I think it's safe to use anything or nothing.  I adore tempe bacon and might try that next time!
