I hope this Eggs Benedict recipe with cheeses I'll recommend is what you're looking for. This is best served over English muffins and Canadian bacon then topped with a simple sauce.
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon white vinegar
8 cold eggs
4 English muffins, split and toasted
8 slices Canadian bacon, warmed
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

For cheese sauce, melt butter in a pan. Stir in flour until smooth and add the milk. Let it boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the cheese, mustard, salt and pepper, stirring until cheese is melted. Cover and keep warm. In a skillet with high sides, bring 2-3 in. of water and vinegar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer gently. For each egg, break the cold eggs into a custard cup or saucer, the hold the dish close to the water surface, slip the egg into the water. Cook 4 eggs at a time, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until the whites are completely set and the yolks begin to thicken. With a slotted spoon, remove each egg. Repeat with remaining eggs. To *emble, top each muffin half with one slice Canadian bacon, one egg, cheese sauce and bacon.

If you were satisfied with the recipe with Cheddar and Parmesan cheese, you will also love this almost the same Eggs Benedict recipe in a simpler baked version.
1 package English muffins
12 slices Canadian bacon
8 oz. grated Swiss cheese
12 eggs
2 cups milk
black pepper, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Hollandaise Sauce

Grease 12 - 8 oz. ramekins and set aside. Cube English muffins and place enough in each ramekin to fill half way. Sprinkle muffins with a small hand*l of cheese. Place a slice of Canadian bacon on next and top with more cheese.  Beat eggs slightly; add milk and peppers to taste. Divide among ramekins. Cover and place in re*erator overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Spoon creamy hollandaise sauce on top and sprinkle with paprika before serving.
