Cooking with Siggis: California Eggs Benny with Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce

Happy Weekend Everyone!

One of my favorite treats is when my family and I decide to go out for Sunday brunch. Since my mom has introduced me to her favorite, there was no going back.

The eggs benedict (without the bacon, of course).

However, we don’t go out that often and let’s be honest the diner can get a tad bit crowded on a Sunday. Usually service is fast, but let’s be frank…it’s nice to enjoy breakfast in the comfort of your own home.’

Not only that, but I find a lot of joy in re-creating some of my favorite dishes into a “healthier version.”

Now I am sure we all know the hollandaise sauce is the unhealthiest part of the dish. Egg yolk + butter = fat + fat. So, I started thinking…why not replace one of those to make it healthier and not so caloric dense in fat. Because let’s be honest…an eggs benedict is not as good without that sauce.

That’s where Siggis came in.

Siggis Dairy philosophy is simple ingredients, not a lot of sugar.

And that’s exactly what this recipe is. Simple ingredients, no artificial sugar crap here. 🙂
