Hard Cooked Eggs Florentine without a muffin complies with the South Beach Diet. And what a delicious recipe.
Hard Cooked Eggs Florentine with hollandaise sauce is a good Saturday breakfast.
I like Eggs Benedict so I thought I would try something similar except eliminate the English muffin to comply with the rigors of the South Beach Diet. I took spinach leaves, turkey bacon, hard-cooked eggs, and an attempt at hollandaise sauce to create this lovely breakfast.
The South Beach Diet by Dr. Arthur Agatston, MD had a Mock Hollandaise Sauce recipe that looked tasty and simple. But alas, like all from-scratch Hollandaise Sauce recipes I've tried before, I couldn't stop this one from curdling. The flavor was delightful but it had a few lumps.
If you have a Hollandaise Sauce recipe that works every time, please send it to me! Or post your tips on how to make the perfect sauce. I'll keep trying periodically until I get it right. Most of the time, we just use the packaged mix by Knorr. It's very tasty and it doesn't lump.
What You Need
You need a good set of pans (specifically the small saucepan), a knife, and a microwave. Turkey bacon is a must.
