Shirred eggs and eggs Benedict are my two favorite egg-based breakfast foods. It is also probably one of my top 5 favorite recipes I’ve posted so far. I certainly don’t make it every day. It is a lot more time-consuming than regular bacon and eggs. But it is a delicious weekend treat!

Eggs Benedict Wellness Mama Style

Have you ever heard of eggs Benedict? Ever actually tried them? I wasn’t too familiar with them before watching Runaway Bride, so I had to look them up.

To make eggs Benedict, toast an English muffin and top it with Canadian bacon or ham, a poached egg, and a drizzle of Hollandaise sauce. Hollandaise sauce is a creamy yellow sauce made of egg yolks, lemon juice, butter, and a pinch of salt. It’s so yummy.

As it turns out, eggs Benedict was actually one of my husband’s favorite foods before going grain-free. I decided I’d modify it to fit our lifestyle. I’m so glad I did because it turned out delicious.

Ingredients in Eggs Benedict

  • The Bread – instead of English muffins I use my coconut flour biscuits.
  • The Meat – traditionally the recipe calls for Canadia bacon or ham. I’ve used both those, but also bacon and sausage. It’s delicious every way.
  • The Eggs – poached eggs are yummy but require a little more attention than I usually care to give them. More often, I fry a whole layer of them sunny-side-up in a pan.
  • The Sauce – Hollandaise. It’s really gotta be Hollandaise. It’s not too tricky, so I make my own. I love it on grilled salmon and asparagus.

Making Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is one of those meals with a lot of moving parts. It’s a lot of things going on all at once, with a good amount of assembly on the plate. It’s really not one of those meals I can make while helping with homework or refereeing an argument. For those reasons, I don’t make it very often. When I do though, I don’t regret it. It’s so satisfying and filling.

Make the coconut flour biscuits and bacon first. They can be made and set aside until needed. You can even cook the bacon in the oven on a baking sheet while the biscuits are cooking.

Make the Hollandaise next and leave it on the stove to stay warm. It doesn’t take long to make it at all, but it also doesn’t store well so don’t make it ahead of time.

The last thing to cook is to make the eggs. If you’re a poached egg lover, you can absolutely do them that way. Here’s a short tutorial. I’m usually cooking for a crowd though so I find it a lot faster to just cook a whole skilletful sunny-side-up.

The only thing left is to stack and serve everything. Top a biscuit with a piece of bacon broken in half, an egg, and Hollandaise. When it’s gardening season I top the Hollandaise with a sprinkle of chives.

These eggs Benedict are now a favorite of everyone in our house, and I hope you’ll try them!

If you like cooking your bacon in the oven, you can save time and cook it on a baking sheet at the same time your biscuits are baking.
You can also use two of the biscuits to make a breakfast sandwich and omit the hollandaise sauce. We’ve also made a variation using breakfast sausage.

    Can’t wait to try some of these recipes. I bought several kinds of nut flour and I’m looking forward to warming up the house this winter baking in the oven.

      Where do we get the recipe for the coconut biscuit and the sauce!?? i cannot believe you posted this recipe the way you did and didn’t include a link to the recipes for the things we need to make! Why would you do that?

    I can’t find grain-free eggs.I live in Ft.Lauderdale. Can anyone help with?

      Look for a local farmer who sells free range eggs. They won’t be
      grain free, but chickens, unlike us, have the ability to digest and
      assimilate grains. Just make sure they aren’t getting soy or
      artificial additives, and they should be fine!

    Eggs Florentine is probably my favorite breakfast (okay, not probably, it IS). These look delicious, but every coconut flour baked good I’ve tried I haven’t been too fond of. It feels really heavy to me and is hard to eat, and even though it is really filling it leaves me feeling hungry soon after. Weird. But it would be nice to have something bread-like with our eggs, so I may try this.

      I think you have to be careful not to add too much coconut flour. The first time I made the waffles they were extremely heavy, but since then I’ve made sure to not add too much flour and they have turned out much fluffier. I’ve also made a couple batches of the muffins off this site and they are great!

      I’ve found it before at Kroger, Publix and Whole Foods. Not sure
      about other stores, but I’d think a lot of them have it. Sometimes
      you have to ask, as it isn’t always in a logical place.
