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.
