Toutons Benedict

I do look forward to my weekend brunches and this Toutons Benedict really hit the spot.

Toutons instead of toasted English muffins are much better as the base for this twist on a classic brunch dish. Fried tomato slices are delicious with this brunch and are just excellent with the freshly made Hollandaise Sauce.

Now I know some of you are thinking why didn’t he use fried bologna instead of ham? Don’t Newfoundlanders love fried bologna? Well I don’t much care for bologna, fried or otherwise really, but fill yer boots if you’d rather use that.

I happened to have some beautiful Dijon Mustard and Demerara Sugar Glazed Ham leftover from supper the other night. I sliced that thin and lightly fried it before slipping it on top of a warm touton along with a poached egg and a simple blender version of Hollandaise Sauce.

Newfoundland Toutons are a wonderful base for Eggs Benedict.

My Toutons Benedict version is pictured here with some very delicious Old Fashioned Molasses & Bacon Baked Beans. Together they make for a very hearty brunch that will see you well through to supper.

Not a fan of Hollandaise Sauce?

This version using the Molasses and Bacon Baked Beans as pictured in the other photographs, stacks up pretty deliciously, all on its own.

Newfoundland Fried Bread "Toutons" form the base of this delicious Eggs Benedict version with lightly fried baked ham and a summer savoury flavoured Hollandaise Sauce.

Ingredients

  • 4 toutons
  • 4 poached eggs
  • 8 ounces ham, thinly sliced and lightly fried

For the Easy Summer Savoury Hollandaise Sauce

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp fresh or dried summer savoury, optional
  • 1/2 cup hot melted butter

Instructions

  1. Prepare the toutons and lightly fry the ham. Hold them in a warm oven while you poach the eggs and make the Hollandaise sauce
  2. In a blender combine the egg yolks, mustard and lemon juice for only a few seconds. With the blender on medium speed, slowly pour in the hot butter in a thin stream. The sauce should thicken quite quickly. Pour into a bowl and keep the bowl warm in a warm water bath while preparing the other components of the Toutons Benedict.
  3. Place the cooked ham on the warm toutons, top with a poached egg and finally the Hollandaise sauce.

Could dry mustard be used in place of mustard? Yeah, you guessed it! I don't care for mustard at all. Lol.

If using dry mustard you would need a tiny pinch.

You could use prepared Dijon style or grainy English style in place of yellow mustard but the sauce needs a bit of nip. Worcestershire? A-One? sriracha?
