Ingredients

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict:

  • 8 oz smoked salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 English muffin, toasted
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, diced (for garnish, optional)

Creamy Yogurt Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 TB Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • pinch salt, to taste

Instructions

Poaching the Eggs:

  • Bring about 3" water to boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Set a mesh sieve in sink or over a bowl, and crack 1 egg into sieve. Allow egg to drain for a few seconds, and then carefully pour egg into the water. Repeat for each egg. 
  • Allow eggs to simmer for 3-5 minutes.  (3 minutes for a runny egg, 5 minutes for a well done egg.)  
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove eggs from water. Set eggs on a paper towel to get rid of excess water.

Making the Creamy Yogurt Sauce:

  • Mix all ingredients together. Salt to taste.

Assembling the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict:

  • Layer one slice of the English muffin, half the avocado, and half the smoked salmon.
  • Add a poached egg to each stack, and top with the sauce.
  • Garnish with green onion if desired. Serve immediately.
