Eggs benedict, cheats hollandaise and sticky butternut chips – mustard two ways

March 27, 2013

Usually I’m a porridge girl, or a granola girl, or a quinoa girl. You should be well aware of my cereal addictions by now (and if you’re not, concentrate harder). However, there are a couple of breakfasts that can draw me away from grainy goodness. One is brioche with smoked eggs and salmon (more on brioche very soon) and the other is eggs benedict. Ideally the eggs benedict at 202London, but there lies another tale. I’ll tell you one day.

After receiving one pot each of Dijon and whole grain mustard from Grey Poupon, eggs benedict was the first thing I thought of, but I wasn’t about to wait until breakfast –  so we had salmon, brocolli and eggs benedict with sticky mustard-roasted -butternut -quash chips for dinner. Mustard two ways and delicious in both.

As a bank holiday weekend approaches, what better way to start the day than the crossword, a pot of coffee and eggs benedict. One catch, you want it to be easy because it’s a holiday, right? That’s where this cheats Hollandaise comes in..


Cheats Hollandaise or Healthy Hollandaise (but ssh don’t tell)

80g yoghurt – plain greek / natural yoghurt
1 egg yolk
a squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
a pinch of salt and pepper

Prepare a bain-marie
Mix together the yoghurt, egg yolk, and lemon juice until combined
Heat in the bowl over the bain-mairie, stirring all the time (unless you are me in which case, stop then beat like crazy) until thickened. You might think it’s getting runnier but it will get better – around 15mins
Remove from the heat, stir in the mustard and season to taste.

Sticky and fiery all in one

Sticky Mustard-roasted Butternut Squash Chips

Mix in a bowl: 2 tbsp olive oil (I used rosemary oil)
1 tbsp whole grain Grey Poupon mustard
2 tbsp maple syrup
Chop your butternut squash into chip shapes and toss in the mixture.
Cook for 30mins at 200c

Thankyou to Grey Poupon for the delicious mustard.

My other thoughts for uses are:

Macaroni cheese with the Dijon mustard
All manner of salad dressings.
Roasted asparagus with the hollandaise
Wholegrain creamy mustard mash
Muffins with mustard, bacon and parsnip
Mustard, mushroom and cream sauce for chicken or other
and much more!

    I’m definitely a sweet-breakfast girl too; mostly a medley of 3 or 4 cereals all mixed up in a bowl together. That or pancakes. Mmmm… Where was I?

    Oh, yes- this sounds delicious! And so much easier to make than the regular version. I’ll admit, I’ve never tried making it before- but this sounds even easier than going to buy it at Waitrose! Hurrah!

    It was lovely to meet you yesterday- looking forward to reading more of your blog 🙂
