Egg benedict is a healthy breakfast option made from fresh, nutritious ingredients.

This recipe is paleo and gluten-free. If you’ve never had this incredible dish before, you’ve got to indulge! You can make this delicious dish at home in only a few steps.

So go ahead and enjoy this classic dish during your next weekend brunch! One thing is for sure, you are going to love it!


  • Sweet Potato Toast: Sweet potatoes are used for the base instead of a traditional English muffin. Use a well-sharpened knife to cut a thick slice of sweet potato and then place it in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Bacon: The second layer is a round slice made from Canadian bacon with a ham-like texture. It is usually made from the back of pigs that are cured, smoked, and fully cooked.
  • Poached Eggs: Poached eggs serve as a key ingredient to this recipe. If you don’t know how to poach eggs, there are several tutorials online, check them out!


Hollandaise Sauce: What’s a dish without a sauce? We definitely can’t leave this one out! This sauce is easy and takes just a few minutes to whip up at home – just place hot butter with lemon juice, egg yolks, and sprinkle some seasoning in a high powered blender and emulsify. This sauce is also available at grocery stores, but creating it yourself is much more fun!
