the egg man


T
his is the first time I have ever made eggs benedict and I was a little concerned about the results. Yeah right! I make these so often they should be called 'eggs me' or something like that.



This particular version is a mix of some of my favorite things - it is fathers day after all. I made the hollandaise with a little gorgonzola mixed in for some extra oompf.



The poached eggs are sitting on top of some thin slices of salmon filet that was seared quickly and rests gently on a lightly toasted english muffin. The potatoes are a mix of potato, haricot vert and kabocha squash, toss a few lentil sprouts around and the whole dish flies right together like magic. This was my fathers day brunch and it was all I needed. Happy fathers day to all those dads out there and also to the single moms who fill those shoes too!

Jill said...

I came back to read the rest of it...I got sidetracked by the gorgonzola.
