missdiane: (Kitty Chinese food)
[personal profile] missdiane posting in [community profile] weekly_food_challenge
I used this challenge to make a decadent breakfast as a treat. Y'know, the kitties had to wish me a Happy Mother's Day somehow.

I did a spin on the traditional eggs benedict, using salmon instead of canadian bacon/ham and adding some other bits and bobs (some out of necessity). I hadn't tried it before but this pastrami-style smoked salmon looked yummy at TJ's - and BOY was it yummy.


 
 
I had intended to also use Trader Joe's crumpets but I really must stop buying them anymore. They have a tendency to quickly grow mold no matter how you store them. I'd only purchased them on Thursday and yep, little green spots already. I had a tube of buttermilk biscuit dough in the fridge that I'd intended to use on something else but it had to do - and it did very well. I did have a loaf of nice bread I purchased yesterday but with benedict, you need something more sturdy than soft bread.

Since I didn't purchase any asparagus for a side dish, I quick sauteed some thin sliced scallion and some baby spinach to put in between the poached eggs and the salmon. I used this recipe for blender hollandaise sauce, though either I used a smidge too much lemon juice or it could have used another yolk since it turned out thin. But the flavor was there so that's all that truly counts, right? 

Enough babbling, though, here was the result - isn't it pretty?

I'm definitely not going to be hungry for several hours *urp*
