EASTER

AVOCADO CILANTRO EGG BENNY WITH SRIRACHA GLAZED BACON

INGREDIENTS

2 slices Bacon

cup Sriracha

¼ cup Brown Sugar

2 slices Bread [I used Whole Wheat Pane from TJs, but Ciabatta or an English Muffin work great!]

1 Roma Tomato [sliced]

1 large handful Arugula

2 Eggs

Creamy Avocado-Cilantro *Hollandaise* Sauce

1 handful fresh Cilantro

2 large, ripe Avocados

cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt

2 tbsp Lemon Juice

1 Lime [juiced]

EASTER3

DIRECTIONS

#1] Preheat oven to 475 F. Mixing with a fork, combine brown sugar + sriracha. Place uncooked bacon on baking sheet + cover with the brown sugar//sriracha mixture. [*I like to make bacon in the oven because it’s not as messy + you can do other stuff while it cooks!] Cook for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

#2] Let’s make the sauce! In a food processor combine avocado + cilantro + lime + lemon juice + greek yogurt + blend until it is smooth//creamy!

#3] Time to poach that egg! Did you know you could poach an egg in a microwave + it takes all of hmm… I don’t know 30 seconds? YUP. In a small glass dish [or coffee mug] fill halfway with water + crack an egg into it. [Make sure the egg is fully covered with water.] Cook for 30 seconds + take it out + check [if you still see uncooked egg whites in the mug it needs to cook longer] + cook for 15 second increments until cooked. Be sure not to overcook it or the egg will not be runny!

#4] When the bacon is finished baking assemble your benny! Start with 1 slice toasted bread + a spread of cilantro//avocado sauce + 1 slice bacon + arugula + 2 slices tomato + the poached egg! Then drizzle some [A LOT] of sauce on top + garnish with extra cilantro. ; )
