    In the same pan, put the toast butter side down until well browned, then turn over and cook the other side for 1 minute.

    If you are in a hurry, don't butter toast, just put in a toaster.

    Cover with hollandaise sauce. If possible decorate with a parsley leaf, and serve immediately.

Remarks:

Try to use not completely white bread, but whole-wheat instead, your toast and your eggs Benedict will be better. Even better is to make your own sandwich bread. Don't be afraid, it's quite easy.
