Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare the coconut flour biscuits and bake them according to the recipe instructions.
  • Cook bacon on a baking sheet in the oven at the same time as the biscuits are cooking.
  • While the biscuits and bacon are cooking, make the hollandaise sauce.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a well oiled skillet, crack the eggs in a single layer being careful not to break the yolks. Cook just until yolks are barely set but still soft. Repeat until all eggs are cooked.
  • As eggs finish cooking, place one egg on top of each biscuit on a plate.
  • Top with cheese if using.
  • Cut a piece of bacon in half and put both halves on top of each egg.
  • Top with a spoonful of hollandaise sauce.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

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. Because of all the proteins and healthy fats, these are very filling. I can only eat one, though my 4 year old can eat 2-3!
If you can't eat dairy, you can use coconut oil or ghee in place of butter in the hollandaise sauce, though it does change the flavor.
