Southwest Style Eggs Benedict

or as my good friend Melynda also named it: "Jenni's Benni" or "Southw​est Benni".

Whatever you call it, it is still purely decadent. It makes the prefect weekend brunch and satisfies so many cravings without all the guilt.

Clean eating doesn’t have to be overly complicated with a handful of hard to find ingredients. Since most of these ingredients are most likely in your fridge or freezer or on your grocery list rotation, this should be easy to whip up.

I was never a fan of Eggs Benedict, so this is my exception. My creamy secret sauce drizzled layers of flavors both spicy and sweet burst to life with every bite.

So show off to your friends and create brunch at home. Save money, buy some bubbly, fresh oranges and fruit, and enjoy your own brunch on a sunny spring day.

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 4 cage-free eggs
  • 2 chicken sausage links
  • Heirloom Tomato Slices
  • 1 avocado, smashed
  • Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
  • Secret Sauce
  • ¼ cup 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 small lime, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons organic honey

Instructions

Follow the steps for the sweet potato toasties, except for the direction you cut the sweet potatoes. Instead of lengthwise, cut ¼ inch circle rounds.

Cook the chicken sausage on medium-high heat.

Poach the eggs. I use these handy gadgets to help me. Let your water boil and add a splash of white vinegar as it will help the eggs maintain their form.

Poach anywhere from 2:30-3:15 based on your stove top and desired cook.
