What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: Avocado Eggs Benedict

With everything being crazy right now as I finish my degree, meals lately have been, eh…. subpar to say the least.  Let’s just say we’re eating a lot of cereal.  I’m not a big brinner (breakfast for dinner) person, because I think it confuses my brain, but I have been making this recipe a lot lately.  I shared this recipe with Simply Kelly a few weeks ago, but in case you missed it, here it is again.
Avocado Eggs Benedict with Chipotle Hollandaise
Sandwich Ingredients:
1 avocado
lime juice
2 English muffins
2 eggs

Chipotle Hollandaise Sauce Ingredients:
1.5 tbs chipotle chilies in adobo sauce puree
2 egg yolks
1-2 tbs lime juice
pinch of salt
8 tbs butter, melted

1. Cook bacon.  While the bacon is cooking make the Chipotle Hollandaise Sauce.  In a blender, mix all of the ingredients except butter for 30 seconds.  Then slowly mix in the butter.

2. Next, heat a saucepan of water up to a simmer.  While you’re waiting on the water, mash together the flesh of an avocado, lime juice and salt to your liking.  Then toast your english muffins.

3.  When the water comes to a simmer, crack each egg, separately, into a bowl.  Stir the water with a spoon and pour the egg into the swirling water.  Let it cook for 2.5-3 minutes.

4. While your eggs are cooking, spread the avocado mixture on the muffins and top with your bacon.  When your eggs are done removed them from the water with a slotted spoon so that water drains off.  Place an egg on top of the bacon, and season with salt and pepper.  Then pour on some of the chipotle hollandaise sauce

5. Dig in and enjoy!DSC_0031 You’ve got to try this quick brinner recipe.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we have :-)

Believe it or not I have never made eggs benedict! I think my husband would love this brinner idea - eggs and avocado are some of his favorite things, but I don't think he's ever tried them together!
