Keto Eggs Benedict 

On of our favorite Muffin Tin Breakfast Recipes 

Eggs benedict is a classic. If you've eaten breakfast at any diner in the last 60 years you have probably seen eggs benedict on the menu. It is typically a poached egg sitting on top of an English muffin half or toast with Canadian bacon and hollandaise sauce. The steps to make can be easy if you are familiar, but those new to making the sauce or poaching eggs can have a hard time and usually just skip it. To simplify the process we changed it up,  the sauce is quickly down in the microwave and the eggs poured right into a muffin tin!

But, Why is it called Eggs Benedict?

Funny story,  apparently some wall street guy was sorely hungover one morning in New York and ordered buttered toast, crispy bacon, 2 poached eggs and a "hooker" of hollandaise sauce.  Now that was in 1894. Apparently there is some controversy over who actually created the term/recipe since it is said that a restaurant in 1860 had it on their menu. Who knows how much of this is true, but we know one thing- it is an amazing dish! 

So amazing that we had to create a version for the keto and low carbers. 

Making our Keto Eggs Benedict 

Makes 6 Keto Low Carb Egg Cups

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • cracked black pepper
  • chives or green onion for garnish

Our Easy COOKED Blender Hollandaise sauce: 

  • 3 large egg yolks MUST BE ROOM TEMPERATURE. 
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (dijon or yellow)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon each salt & pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Line bottom with individual slices of ham. Spoon a small amount of sauce into the muffin tin. Crack one egg in each muffin spot on top of the ham and sprinkle with cheese and black pepper. Bake until set and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. 

Let rest a couple minutes before removing from pan. Top with chives and just a touch more sauce. Serve.

Directions for the keto eggs benedict hollandaise sauce:

Using a small blender cup, like a Ninja, melt butter in the microwave. Pour into small dish, set aside. Crack eggs into blender cup, add cream, mustard and seasonings. Start blending, pour in half of the butter, blend. Pour in remaining butter. Blend. 

Heat in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until you can feel the sauce is heating.  Blend in between if gone past 30 seconds.  If done correctly this WILL NOT separate or cook the eggs, we have done this a gazillion times.  You can do this in a regular blender, but it may not fit in the microwave. In that case temper the eggs first according to the traditional recipe. 

There are blender recipes out there that do not heat the eggs. That is NOT this recipe. DO NOT CONSUME RAW EGGS.

  1. These are amazing, I don't agree with the bad review- just because you don't like eggs doesn't mean the recipe deserves a bad rating WOW People!

  2. That SAUCE is SO easy, holy crap. I almost didn't even attempt because the microwave idea scared me but it actually works great.
