Greek yogurt is the base of this thick and creamy version of hollandaise sauce and just a touch of mayonnaise and butter give it some richness. We've also subbed in a whole-wheat English muffins for a little fiber and whole-grain oomph. Eggs Benedict without the guilt—at last!
2 whole-wheat English muffins, split
4 thin slices Canadian bacon
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 200°. Toast English muffins, then transfer to two plates and keep warm in oven. Brown bacon in a small frying pan over medium heat, turning once, about 4 minutes total. Put 1 slice on each muffin half and return to oven. Poach 4 eggs (go to Sunset.com to search for "perfect poached eggs").
Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Meanwhile, whisk together yogurt, remaining egg, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl. Gradually whisk yogurt mixture into butter and heat until just warmed, whisking often, about 25 seconds (be careful not to overcook the sauce, as it will curdle).
Top muffins with poached eggs, pour some sauce over them, and serve any extra sauce on the side. Sprinkle with pepper and parsley.
What a great!! sub for high-fat & cholesterol hollandaise. We absolutely loved it and it is so easy. I broiled my muffins to get them evenly toasted yet the bottom was still soft. What a wonderful breakfast!! This sauce is a real keeper.
Pretty tasty. The sauce had a definite yougurt-ish flavor to it. Maybe I used too much or didn't cook long enough. These were also very messy to eat, but I guess that can be expected. Also, how long does it take to toast the muffins in the oven at 200deg? I used a broiler. Pretty good, light version of the original.
This was a delicious, healthier upgrade. I will make this regularly, instead of going out and getting the full fat version. I switched the Canadian bacon for Morningstar Veggie Sausage patties, and it tasted great.
The Hollandaise sauce is unbelievably delicious. We were skeptical of the yogurt as the main ingredient to the sauce, but were immediately convinced after eating this delectable dish. Please keep up the good work!
