Healthy Eggs Benedict

Eggs Bennedict

I haven’t tried this yet but it’s on the list for breakfast this week…looks yummy! 

Try making this easy Benedict dish and enjoy your ham, eggs and mayonnaise in a different way!

A few things:

  • Count carbs as one per egg in this easy, fun dish.
  • A glass or circle cookie cutter makes the shape of the egg perfect for your ham or Canadian bacon slices.
  • Double your egg amounts to make fluffier, thicker egg patties for your breakfast. You can store the extras for later!

Eggs Benedict

2 Tbsp butter
1 egg
Ham slice
Lazy Hollandaise Sauce

Over medium heat in a small pan, scramble egg in heated butter, careful to allow egg to form into a solid mass through cooking and less manipulation (if you have an egg ring, you can use that instead). Flip eggs once to complete cooking. You will likely need to fold egg in half to achieve height after cooking, or fold several times. Allow egg to cool slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Using a glass or circle cutter with the width of your ham (or cut your ham to fit the egg diameter), cut egg to resemble muffin. Place on top of ham. Cover with Hollandaise sauce (below).
