Popeyes w/ Hollandaise Sauce

So, our brother Jas called me last week with an idea for a post. Now Jason is into all things food! He loves to read about food, watch food tv, make crazy food concoctions and most of all EAT food! He said to me, “hey, do you remember when Mom used to make us popeyes for breakfast?” I said, “yep!” So he says, ” well, I was watching Paula Dean and she did popeyes with hollandaise sauce. You should make them for the blog.” And man am I glad I did! They turned out awesome! I had the popeyes and the sauce done and ready to devour in less than 10 minutes FLAT! It’s like a more laid back version of eggs benedict. But with all the same great flavor! A delicious, homemade breakfast has never been so quick and easy!

For the Popeyes:

Take a round biscuit or cookie cutter and press through the middle of your favorite bread. Save the bread rounds to toast with your popeyes. Put the bread in a pan or on a griddle over medium high heat. Crack 1 egg for each bread slice and pour straight from the shell into the cut out center of the bread. While that is cooking, make your Hollandaise sauce:

Into the blender and mix for 5 seconds:

3 egg yolks

1/4 teaspoon mustard

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 drops of red hot sauce (tabasco or cholula)

Add and mix until slightly thickened: (should thicken almost immediately)

1 stick of butter melted completely

Flip your popeyes to the other side to finish cooking. Should be about 2-3 minutes per side. Serve with toast rounds and drizzle with warm hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle fresh dill over the top if you would like!
