It starts with eggs benedict, but it quickly morphs into much more than just the regular menu option sitting on an English muffin. In fact, it sits on a croissant. Trust me folks, if you can master this brunch item your favorite women will be requesting it every year! Ready to create the best Mother’s Day brunch recipe ever? Let’s hit it.
- 2 fresh croissants, sliced open
- 2 tsp. margarine or butter warmed
- 2 eggs, large
- Hollandaise sauce
- 6 pieces prosciutto, sliced thin
- 1 cup arugula
- Salt and pepper to taste
To prepare the Eggs Benedict:
- On the stovetop, bring a few inches of water to a simmer.
- Crack an egg into a small bowl or cup, and then slide it into the simmering water. (Repeat for both eggs)
- Make sure to keep the eggs separated from one another.
- Turn off the heat and cover the pan.
- Wait approximately 4 minutes (1 minute for each egg), so that the whites are cooked but the yolk will be runny.
Once your eggs are ready, you can begin to build your brunch sandwiches. Spread butter (or a spread of your choice) onto the buns and then lay down the arugula. On top of that, lay down your finely-sliced prosciutto, eggs and salt and pepper.
To top it all off, drizzle the eggs in Hollandaise sauce. If you’re not sure how to make this amazing sauce, try out this Hollandaise sauce recipe.
These recipe requirements are meant for two servings, so feel free to double up wherever necessary. I had a version of this a few weeks ago, and I’ve been tinkering with it ever since depending on what is in my fridge.
If you’d like, consider swapping out the prosciutto for salmon or ham, or swapping arugula for spinach. This is also a great recipe because you can add in whatever sauces your special someone likes, such as hot sauce, mayonnaise or something of your own creation.
What to serve it with?
When it comes to sides, you won’t have to worry too much since this sandwich is extremely filling. However, consider adding on some home fries or sweet potato fries for some color.
Of course, even though it’s only brunch there should still be some room for dessert left over. Need some suggestions? Try out these clementine brownies that are small in size and perfect for a lunch cap after you’ve finished all of the sangria (ahem….tea).
