Open Faced Avocado & Eggs Benedict

 This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Hass Avocado Board. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

I am an indulger! I grew up eating all kinds of foods that where not always healthy. This year I have taken my family favorite recipes and updated them to be healthier versions to help maintain a balanced diet and do everything I can to lower our risk of developing type 2 diabetes. On the weekends we indulge in brunch at home. I have updated our ordinary Eggs Benedict to the ultimate healthy version, an Open Faced Avocado and Eggs Benedict.

In the U.S., Hispanics are twice as likely as non-Hispanics to develop type 2 diabetes. My husband and I have both seen loved ones taken from us at the hands of diabetes. My goal is to keep us all at a healthy weight by eating well, the most important action to lowering our risk of type 2 diabetes. It’s a little bit of work to balance out a delicious meal that doesn’t feel like I am putting everyone on a diet or sacrificing the things we love. Avocados have come into our daily diets. With over 75% of the fat in avocados being naturally good fat we can  them with foods high in bad (saturated) fat.  Avocados also have 8% of our daily recommended value (DV) fiber per 1 serving of avocado. Fiber adds bulk to our diet making us feel fuller faster. Diets rich in foods containing fiber have been found to potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.  Avocados also contain monounsaturated fat, and they are sodium, cholesterol and trans-fat free.

Open Faced Avocado & Eggs Benedict 

Open Faced Avocado & Eggs Benedict

4 open faced avocado and egg Benedicts

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices French Bread
  • 2 Cups Spinach
  • 2 large Avocados
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon parsley
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

Directions:

Healthy Hollandaise Sauce

  1. I don’t own a double broiler, but if you do have a double broiler skip this step. Fill a sauce pan 1/2 full of water on medium heat. Place a round metal strainer over the sauce pan so that the strainer sit on top of the pot with the strainer portion just touching the water.
  2. In a heat safe bowl (that will sit nicely in the strainer)add yogurt, lemon juice and egg yolks. Beat until well mixed.
  3. Once water is simmering, place bowl in strainer 15 minutes, mixing frequently.
  4. Remove from heat add salt, pepper and 1/3 teaspoon parsley.

Eggs Benedict

  1. In a skillet, fill half way with water and 2 tablespoons vinegar on medium heat.
  2. When water comes to a low simmer gently add one egg.
  3. When the first egg has started to come together, add another egg to the water in a different spot. I repeat this, adding up to 4 eggs to my skillet.
  4. Turn off the heat, cover the skillet, and let sit for 6 minutes.
  5. In the meantime toast slices of french bread, add a layer of spinach and 4 slices of avocado.
  6. Remove cover and use a slotted spoon to remove the first egg that went in. Let water drip off egg before placing over avocado.
  7. Add sauce over top and sprinkle parsley flakes.

Enjoy your open faced avocado and eggs Benedict.
