About 6 months ago, I talked my dearest friend, of 24 years, into changing her lifestyle and going Paleo (she has lost 40ish pounds and feels more amazing each day!). She is a wonderful cook and has been creative in the kitchen since we were kids. She has embraced Paleo and never looked back. She trusted me 100%- cleaning out her kitchen and working hard to learn everything she could about what is and what isn’t Paleo. I have asked her to start sending me some of her recipes so that I can try them and also share them with you.
I just got this one and have not tried it yet, so when you cook it up for your Sunday morning breakfast tomorrow, please leave a comment and let me know how amazing it was!
Eggs Florentine Benedict
*makes 6 Benedicts
bundle of spinach
6 pieces of ham or Canadian bacon
1 can coconut milk
¼ cup butter
2 tbsp coconut flour
1-2 tsp pepper
salt if desired
squeeze of lemon if desired
To prepare the sauce, put butter in your favorite sauce pan on medium heat. Once melted add coconut flour and pepper. After the seasonings dissolve in the butter add the can of coconut milk. Stir until it thickens. Add a squeeze of lemon and salt to taste, if desired. Turn to low heat and cover.
Wash and remove stems from spinach and steam.
Drizzle some olive oil in a separate pan, and on medium heat fry the ham or Canadian bacon.
Poach eggs to desired wellness.
When everything is ready, place ham on your plate and top with spinach, eggs and sauce. Delish!
Note: You will find that I LOVE the Food Network. I love trying to recreate recipes (in a Paleo way) from all my favorite stars, especially Bobby Flay and Anne Burrell. So once upon a time when I didn’t know how to properly poach an egg, I tried Alton Brown’s way.
