Classic Keto Eggs Benedict Recipe
Brunch can be a difficult undertaking on a keto diet. Most restaurants I’ve eaten brunch at have carbs and sugary treats as far as the eye can see. But you can make your own brunch masterpiece with this classic keto eggs benedict recipe with toasted bread and hollandaise sauce.
How to Make Keto Eggs Benedict
Eggs benedict consists of a poached egg, ham or Canadian bacon, hollandaise sauce, and an English muffin. Most of that isn’t an issue on a ketogenic diet.
The English muffin, however, needs to be swapped out for the good of your ketosis.
Don’t worry, I included a link to my 10-minute keto toast, so you can have a delicious base for your eggs benedict that doesn’t add a bunch of cooking time.
Instead of white or all-purpose flour, it uses almond flour as a base. You’ll get good nutrition without a bunch of pesky carbs.
Many people enjoy eggs benedict on a special occasion, but it doesn’t occur to them to make it themselves at home.
Don’t be those people! Hollandaise sauce sounds intimidating, but it’s not all that difficult to make. The secret is to keep whisking. Just keep whisking. Don’t stop.
This is one of those times you may want to have a helper handy to assist you. The ghee needs to be added to the sauce while you’re whisking, just a tablespoon at a time.
