Healthy Eggs Benedict


  • 8 large eggs, poached
  • 4 sprouted English muffins (8 halves)
  • 8 slices uncured turkey bacon
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves, sautéed
  • 4 tablespoons healthy hollandaise sauce (recipe below)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Hollandaise sauce
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill


  1. While eggs are cooking, toast English muffins, cook/bake the turkey bacon sauté, and prepare hollandaise sauce.
  2. Hollandaise sauce
  3. Use double boiler or like me - place a strainer/sieve over a sauce pan of water and place a bowl in the sieve.
  4. Beat yogurt, lemon juice, egg yolks well
  5. Heat over simmering water, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened, approx. 15 min (sauce will become thinner after about 10 min and then thicken again).
  6. Remove from heat and stir in salt, mustard, pepper and dill.
  7. To assemble, top each English muffin with a slice of uncured turkey bacon, scoop of spinach and then the poached egg. Top each piece with ½ tablespoon hollandaise and a sprinkle of black pepper.
