Southwest Eggs Benedict from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast
Eggs Benedict is an American brunch or breakfast dish that consists of two halves of an English muffin each of which is topped with Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and hollandaise sauce. Many variations on the basic recipe are served and this one from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast is a bit out of the box and oh so delicious.
Southwest Eggs Benedict
8 each saltine cracker, broken up
2 each garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste
2 cans black beans, canned, rinsed
6 each green onions, chopped
2 sprigs cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
In food processor, grind crackers well. Add garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper and blend well. Add one can of beans and blend well. Then add the second can, the green onions and cilantro and blend until just incorporated. Add water, one teaspoon at a time, until you reach consistency to hold together without being too sticky. Form into 12, 3 inch round, ½ inch high patties. Fry patties over medium high heat in vegetable oil, about 5 minutes per side.
To serve, arrange 2 patties per plate, spread a fan of avocado on each patty, place a poached egg on the avocado and top with the grated cheese. Garnish with tomato salsa or corn relish cilantro sprigs
