Who doesn’t love waking up to a hearty breakfast to start the day? Better if you don’t have to make it for yourself (yay for mimosas). But for those moments when you have to wake up and make something for yourself, or impress an overnight guest, having a quick and easy fancy pants options in the deck is a must.
Eggs Benedict. Neither quick or easy. But, impressive. Indeed. And this recipe is here to make you rethink just how hard eggs benedict have to be. It’s quick and easy and can probably be made with ingredients you already have in your fridge. Go on and check it out.
Then get back to bed.
- 3 tbs sour cream
- 2 tbs milk
- 1 teas Dijon mustard
- 2 eggs
- 1 whole grain English muffin
- few slices of ham
- 1 tomato, sliced
- fresh chives, snipped
- salt and pepper
- Whisk the sour cream, milk, and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a small saucepan or deep skillet, heat enough water to cover eggs to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Crack the eggs, one at at time in a small bowl and drop each one into the pot carefully so to not splash. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the whites are set and the yolks are almost set. Remove the eggs gently with a slotted spoon.
- Meanwhile, toast the muffin. Top with the ham and tomato slices and place in the toaster oven for another minute (or under the broiler).
- Arrange the eggs over the sliced tomato and spoon a bit of the sour cream 'hollandaise' sauce over each.
- Get fancy and win points for presentation by garnishing with chives and seasoning with salt and pepper.
