Ingredients

  1. Blender mustard-hollandaise sauce:
    • 2 Tablespoons light mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • Pinch of cayenne pepper
        2.  Eggs benedict

    • 1/4 cup white vinegar
    • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 ounces Canadian bacon, cut into small chunks
    • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
    • 8 cups petite kale or baby spinach
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 whole wheat English muffins, split
    • 1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices
    • 4 large eggs
    Directions

    1. Hollandaise sauce
    • Combine the mayonnaise, 1 Tablespoon warm water, mustard, lemon juice and cayenne pepper in a blender and process until combined.  Scrape out and set aside.  
         2. Eggs benedict

    • Fill a wide pot with about 3 inches of water and the vinegar.  Bring to a low simmer.
    • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet.  Add the Canadian bacon and shallots and cook, stirring frequently until golden about 4 minutes.  Add the baby spinach or kale, remove from heat and stir until the spinach or kale wilts, about 2 minutes.  Season with pepper.  Set aside and keep warm.  
    • Toast each english muffin in a toaster oven or under a broiler until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.  Top each with a tomato slice and toast until the tomato is just slightly warm, about 1 minute.  Top each muffin with the Canadian bacon-spinach/kale mixture.  
    • Crack each egg into a mug and slip into the simmering water.  Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes.  Remove with slotted spoon and place on each benedict.  Drizzle with hollandaise and serve.
