Sausage and Eggs Benedict with Mock Hollandaise Sauce
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.
I made this sausage and eggs benedict as part of Johnsonville Kitchen’s Wake Up To Better Breakfast Promotion.
