November 9, 2014 at 2:52 pm Leave a comment

Dennis and I woke to a gloomy, rainy day  here in Central Florida this morning. Although we do enjoy an occasional rainy day,  we felt we  needed some comfort food ! Since we are trying to live a more health promoting lifestyle, and eggs Benedict  is one of our favorite comfort foods, we came up with this healthy alternative.

Ingredients needed to serve 2 :

4 large eggs from cage free raised hens fed a vegetarian diet with no hormones or antibiotics.

4 whole wheat English muffins, split

4 Vegetarian sausage patties

For the Hollandaise sauce:

Mayo made with extra virgin olive oil

1 lemon – halved

salt (optional- we don’t add salt)

Black pepper to taste, freshly ground

1/4 c. water

1/4 c. low fat Greek yogurt

1/8 to 1/4 tsp garlic powder , or to taste

1/8 to 1/4 tsp turmeric; just enough to turn the “Hollandaise”sauce yellow.

For the garnish:

Parsley or fresh chives, chopped

Paprika

 

Make the mock “Hollandaise” sauce:

Combine the following with a whisk, in a microwave proof container, we use a 2 cup measuring cup

– 3/4 cup EVOO mayo

-juice of 1/2 lemon

-salt (optional)

-1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

-1/8 to 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, or to taste

-1/8 to 1/4 tsp. turmeric, just enough to make the sauce yellow

-1/4 cup water

-1/4 cup low fat Greek Yogurt

Place in microwave and heat gently

 

Toast 2 split English muffins; spread tops with a thin layer of EVOO mayo, keep warm

Cook the 4 vege sausage patties according to oven baked directions on package ( we find that microwaving the patties makes them tough) , keep patties warm

Poach the 4 eggs; leave yolks runny or done to your taste

-Top muffins with sausage patties, eggs  and then the sauce; sprinkle with chopped parsley or chives and a little paprika.

Yumm-O ! A healthy, hearty and happy comfort food breakfast!

Till next time,
