Sausage and Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce

 

Sausage and Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Eggs Benedict has to be my all-time favorite breakfast. There’s something so soothing about slowly poaching each egg and carefully making the beautiful hollandaise sauce. Sometimes I don’t want all the fat in a regular hollandaise sauce though, and I make this simple mock version. It’s  a combination of mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and fresh dill. I blend it in either a food processor or blender and spoon it down over the poached eggs and sausage. I used Johnsonville sausage instead of ham for this version too, it’s a nice change-up.

We eat breakfast for dinner at least once a week. It saves money, and well, we just love breakfast foods! Because it was at dinner, I served a simple salad of spring greens. This would also make the perfect springtime brunch treat to serve Mom this Mother’s Day.

I used this gorgeous ScanPan to cook my sausage. The non-stick surface on this pan sure is an upgrade from my little Target special nonstick skillet.

Brown Johnsonville breakfast sausage patties according to package directions. Bring a pot of water to a simmer. Swirl water and drop eggs in and cook each for about 3 minutes, or until done. Yolks will be runny.

    Excellent idea with the mock hollandaise! Thanks! I didn’t have Dijon so I used mustard seeds & mayo and tasted ok too!

    A quarter tsp. of tumeric will add a nice taste, a healthy touch and make the sauce a more traditional color
