If you’re a fan of brunch, you’re likely also a fan of eggs Benedict. The classic brunch dish combines english muffins, asparagus, ham, runny poached eggs, and rich, creamy hollandaise sauce. It’s truly the perfect recipe for bridging the gap between breakfast and lunch.

While eggs Benedict is undoubtedly delicious, it can be a bit labor-intensive. If your kitchen isn’t equipped with the amazing Hamilton Beach® egg cooker, you might struggle to make the perfectly poached eggs. Hollandaise isn’t the easiest recipe in the book either.

We scaled back eggs Benedict into a breakfast sandwich, making it easier to approach and enjoy any morning of the week – not just for Sunday brunch.

First, preheat your Hamilton Beach® Breakfast Sandwich Maker. It’s claim to fame is putting a hot, homemade breakfast on the table in 5 minutes or less. We’re a little biased, but we have to admit, it’s pretty great. Whether you’re ditching the bread and making a cheesy omelette or pre-making bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches to freeze for the week, there’s no excuse for skipping breakfast when this marvel is in your kitchen.

Eggs Benedict Breakfast Sandwich

Once the Breakfast Sandwich Maker is preheated, lift the cover, top ring, and the heating plate. Place the bottom half of an english muffin (split side up) on the bottom of the Breakfast Sandwich Maker and top it with baby spinach and a slice of Canadian bacon.  Baby spinach cooks a little easier than asparagus would in the Breakfast Sandwich Maker, so we improvised.

Lower the cooking plate and add one egg. Then add the other english muffin half on top and lower the cover. Cook for 4-5 minutes.

It’s not eggs Benedict without hollandaise sauce so we whipped up a quick version we adapted for the Hamilton Beach® single serve blender.

Drizzle the hollandaise on top like you would with classic eggs Benedict and grab and fork and a knife. Or serve it on the sandwich (like you would any other condiment) to make it a little easier to eat with your hands. Introduce the kids to eggs Benedict with this simple sandwich version during the week or put them on the Mother’s Day brunch buffet alongside mimosas and coffee cake.

Classic deviled eggs are great, but how about adding avocado for a twist on a classic?

Avocado Deviled Eggs

We used the Egg Cooker to cook our eggs, but you could certainly hard boil them in a pot on the stove. Once the eggs are cooked, peel them, cut them in half and remove the yolks.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Using the food processor chopping/mixing blade, process eggs yolks, avocados, cilantro, mayonnaise, pepper and cumin until the mixture is smooth. Pipe or spoon the mixture into each egg white half.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Top each Avocado Deviled Egg -or Green Devil as they are sometimes called- with salsa and a sprig of cilantro. The salsa complements the avocado in the eggs, and adds a burst of red to this already colourful dish. Put these on the table for brunch or as an appetizer and wow your guests with a creamy, flavourful take on deviled eggs.

Breakfast casseroles are a great way to feed a crowd, whether it’s your large family or house guests over the weekend. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, cheese, tomatoes and more cheese – what’s not to like? If you need to feed a crowd, put this Spiralized Potato Breakfast Casserole on the table and watch it disappear.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-5

 

Using your 3-in-1 Electric Spiralizer, spiralize about 2 pounds of baking potatoes. The spirals give this standard casserole a revamped appearance and texture. Microwave the potato spirals in a baking dish before adding the other ingredients. This helps the potatoes get a head start on cooking (they finish while the casserole bakes).spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-1

For your egg mixture, using a hand mixer, beat eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper on medium speed. Then add grape tomatoes, cheddar cheese (or a combination of your favourite cheeses), green onion and bacon to the egg mixture and stir. We used pre-cooked bacon as a time-saver but if you have the time in the morning, a little bacon grease wouldn’t hurt this recipe. Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-14

Uncover the casserole and add remaining cheese and dot the top with grape tomatoes. Put it back in the oven to finish cooking for about 15 minutes and you’re ready to serve.spiralizer-breakfast-casserole-11

This casserole is a meal in itself, but you could serve it alongside fruit salad or extra pieces of bacon for an extra hearty breakfast. It serves twelve so make sure diners bring their appetites or save leftovers for breakfast throughout the week.
