Poached Eggs with Dijon Avocado Sauce

 poached eggs 5

I didn’t want to refer to this dish as an Eggs Benedict because, hello, no hollandaise! I acknowledge that the lack of hollandaise causes this dish to take a step back from what we know and love as Eggs Benny. However, it’s a great alternative for someone who is craving all of the components of an Eggs Benny while wanting to avoid the monstrous calorie intake. The avocado sauce is creamy, the addition of Dijon makes it savory, and the deli ham slices add a nice amount of saltiness.

This was an experiment and I’ll be completely honest: when I initially plated this, I wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t confident that it was going to work. I took the photos anyway, and when I sat down and took my first bite, I think the Kool-Aid man’s “Ohhhh YYEEAAHhhhhh!” came out of my mouth because it was SO. GOOD. What a great way to start the day! I love nothing more than a meal that is healthy yet feels as though it’s incredibly indulgent. It doesn’t get any more WIN/WIN than that!

Zucchini noodles are my new favourite thing, and zucchini noodles in garlic parmesan cream sauce is some kind of heaven. Remember when people were trying to sell the idea that eating spaghetti squash was “just like eating actual spaghetti”? Don’t get me wrong, spaghetti squash is delicious – but in no way, shape or form is it…
