It wouldn’t be Christmas morning without eggs Benedict.  This recipe is from Susan and has become a tradition not only for our family Christmas morning but for brunch on the annual houseboat trips as well.  Always accompany with a sparkling glass of champagne!

1 1/2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

3/4 cup Butter (melted)

1 Tbsp Hot Water

Dash Cayenne

Combine egg yolks and lemon juice in blender.  Add 1 Tbsp hot water to yolks and lemon juice.  Turn blender on high and immediately pour in hot butter in a steady stream for about 5 seconds.  Add a of pinch salt, cayenne and blend for about 30 seconds.

I love quinoa!  It is also a great leftover and can be added to salads, eggs etc.  In this recipe I used arugula instead of spinach because I had it on hand, great!

Here it is Bret & Scott!  So glad you liked the “kick” in this spinach recipe!  Also, the recipe calls for packaged fried onions.  Instead I fried sliced shallots in olive oil and loved it.  Good make a ahead dish.

Here is the second of my Happy New Year’s resolution recipes.  The first one being Twiced-Baked Spaghetti Squash with Pesto and Parmesan and this tasty veggie side dish.  I substituted panko, that I had on hand, for the whole wheat bread crumbs, still crunchy and yummy.
