CRAB CAKE EGGS BENEDICT with EASY HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
A delicious & easy way to fix Eggs Benedict that takes less than 20 minutes. Whip up the super easy Hollandaise sauce, add a store bought crab cake & believe me, breakfast never tasted so good! Oh, and add a mimosa for a special treat!
2frozen crab cakes(I used Phillips Maryland Style)
1English muffin,divided or 2 pcs toast (gluten-free if needed)
1Tablespoonlime or lemon juice
Garnish: sliced green onion
In medium skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Place on paper towel to absorb extra fat and let cool. Crumble and set aside.
Place crab cakes in skillet and cook according to package directions.
While crab cakes are cooking, make Hollandaise Sauce. Place crumbled bacon in blender along with egg yolks. Blend until bacon is all crumbs.
Melt butter and, while blender is still on, add slowly to bacon-egg mixture.
Add lime or lemon juice and pinch of cayenne and blend for just a few seconds. Done.
Lastly, poach the eggs. If you have an egg cooker they are perfect for making poached eggs, if not, place a small skillet on the stove and fill halfway with water and bring the water to a boil. Crack an egg into a small bowl then carefully slip the egg into the boiling water. Gently spoon the whites closer to the yolk so it stays in somewhat of a circle then turn off the heat and let sit, covered, for 4 minutes.
While eggs are cooking, toast muffin, or if using bread, toast, then using a wide-mouthed glass, press into bread to cut out a circle. Place on plate and top with cooked crab cake.
When eggs are done, scoop out carefully with slotted spoon, let drain, then place on top of crab cake.
Garnish with sliced green onion and a side of fruit.
Tip: Make it gluten-free by eliminating the muffin or toast or by replacing with a gluten-free muffin, such as Ener-G Foods Brown English Muffin, or bread such as Udi's Whole Grain Bread. Use a gluten-free brand of crab cakes such as Handy Certified Gluten-Free Crab Cakes.
