Beach House Benedict

Suzanne Banfield


When we’re at the beach, we like our meals to be fun, casual and very easy to prepare. This breakfast or brunch dish is all that, plus it’s fresh and light. I’ve used healthy avocados instead of heavy meats and added a super-fast mock hollandaise sauce featuring roasted red peppers. Although we usually have it for brunch, it’s also perfect for a light lunch or supper when you serve it with a green salad. If you don’t like poached eggs, a fried egg is a delicious alternative.

How to Make Beach House Benedict


  1. Place mayonnaise, red pepper, 2 teaspoons lime juice, mustard, paprika, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small food processor. Process until well combined. Remove to a small bowl and slowly whisk in the melted butter. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water to warm up the sauce.
  2. Scoop the flesh out of the avocados. Mash them with the remaining 2 teaspoons lime juice; add salt and pepper to taste. Spread on toast slices.
  3. Poach eggs using your favorite method. Drain well and place one on each toast. Spoon red pepper sauce over the eggs and sprinkle them with salt, pepper and chopped chives. Serve with fresh fruit, if desired.
