Who Loves Avocados??
This month it was breakfast. Next month it’s a sandwich of some sort (my wheels are turning)!
So if you love California Avocados as much as I do…stay tuned to see what other delights I have in store for you!
Eggs Benedict with Avocado, Sriracha Hollandaise & Avocado Cream
Homemade or store-bought Hollandaise sauce
Make your Hollandaise sauce, then add some Sriracha sauce to it until you can taste the heat (or to your liking). If you need a great recipe – Alton Brown’s is the best, and what I use!
1/2 TBS grapeseed or olive oil
2 TBS fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
Kosher salt & black pepper
Combine all ingredients in your food processor and pulse until smooth. Taste & adjust to your liking.
1 TBS vinegar
Bring water with 1 TBS vinegar about 3 inches deep to a boil in a saucepan (one that has a lid). Crack your egg into a small ramekin. With a spatula or large spoon, swirl the water vigorously until a small vortex appears. Quickly slide your egg into the vortex. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and allow your egg to poach 3 1/2 -5 minutes…depending on the size of the egg and your preference for the poach (set your timer). Quickly and gently scoop out your egg when done with a slotted spoon, and place it atop your Benedict base, season the egg and continue to build your Eggs Benedict..
Eggs Benedict Assembly
Flatbread (or English Muffin)
2 slices Canadian Bacon
4 slices of Avocado, seasoned
Crumbled bacon (why not!!)
If using an English muffin for a base, toast it. If using flatbread, cut a circle of flatbread for your base with a biscuit or pastry cutter. Lightly oil a pan and sear the bread on both sides, just until it is warm with the beginnings of a crunch.
Sear your Canadian bacon in the same pan. Place that atop your bread. Place your avocado slices atop your Canadian bacon, gently slide your poached egg atop the avocado, spoon on Hollandaise, use a small snack bag (snip off one corner) to squeeze some of your avocado cream over-top, drizzle additional Sriracha (if you want heat) and sprinkle bacon over-top.
Now you are ready to feast!! Keep repeating the recipe until you are full!
