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.

Recipe


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,
