Creamy Avocado Sauce

Eggs Florentine with Creamy Avocado Sauce

Heyyyy! I am swaaaaamped at work but it’s Friday so all is good! I had so much trouble falling asleep last night so I didn’t get to bed until after 1am! That is super late for me. Luckily I didn’t have too much trouble getting up this morning, but I am dragging. I got a grande Americano (3 shots espresso) so hopefully that will help! 😉

Breakfast today was really incredible. I wanted to try those farm fresh eggs I got yesterday at the Farmer’s Market.

I love how they are all slightly different sizes and I really couldn’t wait to taste them. One of my all time favorite breakfast/brunches is Eggs Benedict, but that can be extremely calorie dense with the hollandaise sauce. Since I stopped eating meat, I decided to make a version of Eggs Florentine (same concept but over sautĂ©ed spinach instead of ham), but you could easily sub in canadian bacon, lump crab meat (MY FAVORITE), or anything else your heart desires. I wanted to recreate something just as delicious, but healthier and this morning I did just that!

For the Creamy Avocado Sauce, I mixed in:

  • 1/2 container 0% Chobani plain yogurt
  • 1/3 avocado, mashed
  • generous squirt grainy mustard
  • juice of one lime (would have used lemon but didn’t have any!)
  • salt

I tasted the sauce and it was really good! It kind of tasted like the yolk of a deviled egg if that makes sense, and was super creamy and flavorful.

I poached two eggs (see here for my tricks to the perfect poached egg), sautéed some spinach, toasted an english muffin, and then heated up 2 Morningstar Veggie Sausage Links. It only took 15 minutes in total and it was very well worth it.

I put some spinach on each half of the english muffin, then topped it with the poached eggs, and then used the creamy avocado sauce liberally. It was soooo good. The avocado mashed really well into the yogurt and made it extra creamy. A little acid from the lime, salt to highlight the flavor, and an extra kick from the mustard, and this was delicious. The eggs were perfectly poached so the yolk ran all over when I cut into them.

That picture is making my mouth water and I seriously want these again! I still have about half of the sauce left so that’s entirely possible… 🙂

Happy Friday!!
