This easy eggs benedict recipe is far healthier than anything you can get at a restaurant, but just as tasty!
I love eggs benedict, and used to order it all the time when I still ate breakfast in restaurants. I always left feeling very bloated and very heavy. Like I had a bag of bricks in my belly. But that’s all changed.
I still enjoy eggs benedict, but without all the uncomfortable side effects that restaurant food can have. What DO they put in that food anyway?? Or maybe the better question is….. is it real food?
But I digress.
This tasty breakfast treat is fabulous for any morning when you have a little extra time to stand at the stove. It’s filling, nutritious, and best of all…. it’s clean!
EGGS BENEDICT VARIATIONS:
You can enjoy this dish with a little added lemon juice to the sauce for a more authentic flavor. Just add it a little at a time to avoid curdling the sauce.
WHAT DOES EGGS BENEDICT TASTE LIKE?
Eggs Benedict should always be rich and creamy. This healthier version is no exception. Traditionally, there is a lemony tang to the sauce. However, with this version, I was worried the lemon would curdle the sauce. You can certainly try it though if you really want that traditional flavor!
