Here’s a fresh twist on the standard Eggs Benedict: replace the ham with tomato and avocado. Using a gluten-free English muffin (click on it for my English Muffin recipe), then layer it with fresh veggies and top it off with a delicious gluten-free hollandaise sauce, you have the makings of one delicious Tomato-Avocado Eggs Benedict on your plate! I found the gluten-free hollandaise sauce recipe on the Food Network created by Tyler Florence and it is delish! I served this dish up for my hubby this morning. He took one bite, set his fork down, looked into my eyes and said, “I Love You!” Well I guess the old adage the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach just might be true in this case.
Make the hollandaise sauce first, but you must be careful to not over cook it. If it becomes too thick, whisk in a tiny amount of water. I whisked in a slight amount of warm water right before serving in order to make it a little runnier. This made it easier to run down the sides of the Tomato-Avocado Eggs Benedict as pictured above.
Slice your tomato and avocado to about 1/4 inch slices. Place them on a cookie sheet and set them under the broiler on a low setting just until the edges of the avocado begin to turn light brown (approximately 10 minutes).
If you don’t have gluten-free English muffins handy, you can always create a circle out of a slice of gluten-free bread and toast it. I like to fry my eggs in English muffins rings so it comes out in a perfect circle. Spray your pan and the ring with a non-stick spray so the egg slips out easy. If you don’t have English muffin rings, wide-mouthed jar lid rings work well too. I also like to slightly poach my egg. After I crack the egg and the yolk, I add a small amount of water into the outer part of the fry and cover it with a lid during the cooking process.
Spread a small amount of gluten-free hollandaise sauce on top of your toasted english muffin, then the egg, tomato and avocado. Finally top with the tangy-buttery hollandaise sauce and enjoy one delicious breakfast!
