Healthy, Hearty Sausage Eggs Benedict-Yumm-O Comfort Food! 

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.


Healthy, Hearty Sausage Eggs Benedict

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,
