What Is Eggs Benedict? Eggs Benedict is an amazing breakfast and brunch recipe that originated in New York City. It consists of an English muffin, cut in half, toasted, and topped with Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and classic French Hollandaise sauce. It's decadent, rich, and satisfying. But here, we will do it our way, Keto way! Let's dive in!
I'm not sure about you, but I LOVE eggs benedict, ever since I started the keto diet I was unable to eat it, but now I make it once weekly.
INGREDIENTS for 1 Serving of 2 pieces.
FOR THE CAULIFLOWER HASH BROWN PATTIES
1/2 head cauliflower
1 large egg
1 c. shredded cheddar
Freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
FOR THE POACHED EGGS
2 large eggs
FOR THE HOLLANDAISE
4 egg yolks
A squeeze of lemon juice
1 stick butter, melted
Pinch of cayenne pepper
2 slices Canadian bacon, warmed
Paprika, for garnish
Make cauliflower patties: Grate cauliflower on a box grater until shredded. Add to a medium bowl and crack in the egg. Add cheddar and season with salt.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add spoonfuls of the cauliflower mixture and shape them into patties. Cook until brown and crispy, 5 minutes, then flip and cook 5 minutes more.
Poach eggs: Bring a saucepan of water to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. Create a vortex by stirring the water, then drop in 1 egg. Let cook for 3 minutes, then transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper towel. Repeat with the remaining egg.
Make hollandaise: Discard all but two inches of water and bring to a low simmer. Set a heatproof bowl over a saucepan to create a double boiler and add egg yolks. Add lemon juice and whisk until combined, then stir in the butter in a steady stream, whisking constantly, until combined. Season with cayenne and salt.
Serve cauliflower hash brown patties topped with Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and hollandaise. Garnish with paprika and chives.
