MEXICAN EGGS BENEDICT FLORENTINE

Eggs Benedict: quite good. Eggs Benedict Florentine: unbelievably good. Then there’s this twist, substituting corn tortillas for english muffins. My guys scarfed this down. I didn’t scarf, but only because I exercised restraint. If Hollandaise sauce isn’t your thing, consider salsa. As for the hassle of poached eggs, I made my eggs in a muffin tin. Sometimes cheaters do prosper 🙂

1 pkg Knorr Hollandaise sauce mix (or make your own sauce if you have the time–I didn’t)

olive oil spray

8 eggs

2 tsp olive oil

8 corn tortillas

1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese

1 large tomato, sliced into 8 rounds

2 cups fresh baby spinach

Paprika

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2) Meanwhile, prepare Knorr Hollandaise sauce as directed and keep warm

3) Lightly spray 8 cups in muffin tin with olive oil spray; crack eggs into cups and bake 10-12 minutes (or longer if you don’t like yolks on the runny side)

4) While eggs are baking, in large skillet heat olive oil over medium-high; cook corn tortillas, 1 minute each side until tortillas soften and begin to brown; transfer 2 tortillas to each of 4 plates, overlapping slightly as pictured; reduce skillet heat to low

5) Scatter Monterey Jack cheese over tortillas, dividing equally between servings; top each serving with 2 slices of tomato placed side by side; set aside

6) Add spinach to skillet and cook 1-2 minutes until spinach starts to wilt; remove from heat and divide between tomato slices

7) Finish assembling each serving: top tomato and spinach with cooked eggs and Hollandaise sauce; lightly sprinkle with paprika; serve immediately and let ’em scarf away!

Servings: 4

    Wow!! This sounds scrumptious!! And I’ve never thought about cooking eggs in a muffin tin – genius! I’m definitely going to give this a try!! I just had my sisters over for lunch yesterday – – but now I need them to come for brunch so I can try this recipe – love it!
    So . . . how is the new series coming along?

    • Ooh, I hope you do give it a try, Pam. It’s scrumptious. As for the new series, the Baron Of Godsmere is slowly inching toward completion. I’m not sure end of January is as doable as thought–the holidays were so crazy busy–but February looks mighty good 🙂
