A now-closed restaurant in Providence, Rhode Island, was the only place I willingly ordered eggs Benedict since starting my keto lifestyle. Not because I don’t like eggs Benedict, but I felt it would just not be the same without an English muffin or a fresh buttery biscuit. That all changed when I was served a plate full of pulled pork Eggs Benedict. Even without the bread, it was still filling and wonderful. But breakfast should be easy, and traditional hollandaise sauce is not. So to make this a quick and easy keto breakfast, I use a delicious microwave hollandaise sauce on top of poached eggs and leftover pulled pork from the previous night’s dinner. The combination of savory pulled pork and rich hollandaise sauce is sure to satisfy all morning.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE:

  • 2 large free-range egg yolks

  • Golden Ghee, melted

  • 1 tsp freshly

  • squeezed Meyer lemon juice

  • Pinch paprika

  • Pinch sea salt

  • Pinch cayenne pepper

  • FOR THE EGGS BENEDICT:

  • 1 tsp white vinegar

  • 2 large free-range eggs

  • 1/2 cup Spiced Pulled Pork, heated through

Directions

  • TO MAKE THE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE: In a small microwave-safe bowl, gently whisk the egg yolks with the ghee, lemon juice, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper.
  • Microwave the mixture for 20 seconds and then whisk again until the sauce is smooth. Set aside.
  • TO MAKE THE EGGS BENEDICT: Bring a small pot of water to a simmer. Add the vinegar to the hot water.
  • Crack the eggs into a small bowl, and roll them around lightly so that the whites surround the yolk of the egg. Do not use an egg with a broken yolk.
  • Gently pour the eggs into the simmering water and poach them for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put the heated pulled pork on a plate.
  • Remove the poached eggs from the water with a slotted spoon and dry them gently with a paper towel. Place the eggs on top of the pulled pork and spoon the hollandaise sauce over the eggs. Serve immediately.
