Keto Bacon Benedict

Breakfast, Side Dish

I could slather just about any breakfast food in a creamy Hollandaise sauce.  As I imagined up this Keto Bacon Benedict, I knew I wanted to eliminate the bread and UP the good fats.  Avocado?  Yes, please.  Thick cut bacon?  Bring it on!  Poached eggs that take mealy 45 seconds?  Now I am hooked!

I love juicy and ripe Roma tomatoes so I added thick slices to my Benedict stack.  If you are not eating a keto diet, serve this all on a toasted English muffin.  SO GOOD!

Don’t let the name Hollandaise sound too fancy or intimidating for you.  It is basically just a creamy butter sauce that somehow also tastes a bit like cheese.  And wow is it easy to make with just simple ingredients.  I made mine in the microwave and it thickened up beautifully in no time at all.

You can make a double batch of this Hollandaise sauce and keep it in the fridge to have breakfast Benedict every morning.  Store it next to your cooked bacon and then all you have to do is poach your egg, heat the bacon and sauce while you slice an avocado and tomato.

VIOLA!  Breakfast Benedict is served.

This is the microwave egg poacher that we have had for years.  Making eggs in the microwave is so so easy.

Ingredients

4 egg yolks

1 TBSP mayonnaise

1 tsp lemon juice

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Cooked bacon

Poached eggs (2 per person)

Sliced Avocados

Sliced tomatoes

Instructions

Slowly and carefully whisk together the egg yolks, mayonnaise, lemon juice, cayenne, and salt until nice and smooth.

In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.  Slowly and carefully pour the melted butter into the egg yolk mixture and whisk constantly so as not to make the egg yolks lumpy.

In the microwave, heat the entire mixture for 15 seconds and stir.  Heat again for 10 seconds and stir.  Heat again for 5 seconds.  Stir and let set to thicken while you assemble your stack with the poached egg on top.

I poach my eggs in the microwave and it takes 45 seconds for 2 eggs.  Easy Peasy!

Notes

This sauce can be kept for 2-3 days in the fridge in an airtight container.  This sauce is delicious with veggies and chicken as well.  ENJOY!
