Bad Ass Benedict: Spoil your mother.

Mother’s Day.  There are Hallmark cards, potted spring flowers, possibly a gift certificate for a massage.  But if you REALLY want to show your mom some love, you’ll break out your kitchen skills and make her a breakfast to remember.

Bad Ass Mothers DaySalmon Benedict on Toasted Vegetable Biscuits

Hollandaise Sauce
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
Pinch cayenne
Pinch salt

In a medium stainless steel bowl, whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together  until the mixture is thick.  It should almost double in volume Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water –  the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl.  Keep whisking the mixture – if it gets too hot the eggs will scramble.  SLOWLY drizzle melted butter in while you whisk until the sauce gets thick. Set aside to stay warm until ready for pouring.  If your sauce thickens when cooling, you can whip some water in to thin it (just a few drops will suffice).

Poached Eggs:
2 eggs per person
1 pot not yet boiling water
1 tsp vinegar

Then do this:

You can use smoked salmon or roast some in the oven – get creative and make your meal unique.  I roast mine with a little fresh dill, lemon, and sea salt.

Vegetable Biscuits
2 cups of shredded zucchini
2 eggs
1/4 cup of almond flour
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tbs minced green onion
2 tbs minced white onion
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, then form little patties.  Fry them in a frying pan with coconut oil until firm in the middle and crispy on the edges (about 4 minutes per side).

STACK those babies up!

Biscuit, Salmon, Egg, some of that FINE creamy Hollandaise, a pinch of Fresh Dill… and your mother will be bragging to all her friends about how spoiled she is.  Or how many calories she ate in a single meal.
