Spinach Egg's BenedictSubmitted by: MAYKATCOOPER
IntroductionDelicious and rich Egg's Benedict with the flavor surprise of fresh sauteed spinach. Delicious and rich Egg's Benedict with the flavor surprise of fresh sauteed spinach.
10 cups of fresh, washed and drained spinach leaves
1 3/4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Original
4 Whole Wheat Muffins (Weight Watchers have a wonderful flavor)
4 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp salt
3 TBS melted butter
4 large egg whites
1/16 or pinch Cream of Tartar
2 TBS white vinegar
8 cups water
8 large eggs (Eggland's Best are the best)
Bring the 8 cups of water to a boil and then cover and turn off. As it is coming to a boil...
heat the 1 tsp of olive oil in a large saute or frying pan and saute the 10 cups of spinach at medium until wilted. Sprinkle it with the Mrs. Dash and set aside - covered.
In a medium stainless saucepan, combine the egg yellows with the lemon juice, cayenne and salt whisking it until it thickens. Place it in a blender and blend for few seconds and then slowly drizzle the butter into the egg yellow mixture - do not exceed medium speed for this.
Using a medium bowl (copper works best but glass or stainless will do) beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until it forms stiff peaks. Carefully fold the egg yellow mixture into the egg whites until blended. Cover and set aside.
Add the vinegar to the water that was brought to a boil earlier and return it to a boil. Once boiling, take a spoon and begin to stir in a wide circular motion - forming a circular swirling in the pot. Carefully but quickly plop each little egg into the swirling water placing each cupped egg very close to the water surface and working to not put one right on top of another. They will continue to swirl separately. This process is wonderfully fascinating. Leave in the boiling water for 3 minutes or to your liking and remove quickly with a slotted spoon.
