Cooking With You: Mother's Day breakfast ideas
Many mothers dream of being served breakfast in bed, and Mother's Day offers the best excuse of all to pamper the mother in your life! In today's Cooking With You segment, Gerald Norz of De Pere joins us in the kitchen with some excellent breakfast recipes for Mom for this weekend's holiday.
Egg's Benedict: (makes two servings)
Ingredients; 6 eggs, 2 english muffins, asparagus, tomato, bacon, lemon juice, butter, chives.
Hollandaise Sauce Instructions:
Separate the whites from the yolks of three eggs. Set aside.
Melt 1/2 cup of butter. This can be done in the low heat of a double boiler or in a microwave at 40% power.
Whisk the egg yolks and the lemon juice together. Add to the melted butter and continue to whisk. Whisk until mixture is thick. If cooking in the micro wave at 40% power whisk every 30 seconds. Repeat until thick.
Steam three spears of asparagus for each serving.
Cook two strips of bacon for each serving, you can substitute with Canadian bacon if you prefer..
Poach two eggs (or the quantity for the number of people you are serving.) I prefer a full egg, but if you like you can just use the left over egg whites from the Hollandaise sauce. To poach in water add 1/4 cup of vinegar to a each two cups of water. Bring to a low boil drop in eggs and cook 3-4 minutes.
Toast one side of an English muffin for each egg
Slice a large tomato, one slice for each serving.
Shop some chives for a garnish.
Keep everything hot until ready for assembly, assemble the bacon on top of the muffin, then the tomato, then asparagus then the egg and top with the Hollandaise sauce and a sprinkle of chives. Some cracked pepper can also be added on top.
Ingredients: 3-6 eggs, butter, flour, milk. filling, your choice of honey, butter, fruits, Nutella.
