It’s chile season here in New Mexico! I have missed you so! It’s been too many years since I’ve been home to enjoy the aroma of roasting chiles in the air. Ask any New Mexican and they will tell you that this is a most special time of year. Today I’m sharing a favorite breakfast dish and taking it up a notch to make it even more scrumptious if that’s possible. An eggs benedict with a fry bread base, topped with bacon, poached eggs and a green chile hollandaise sauce ladled over top. Making this for just the two us us presented a dilemna of scaling everything down from the fry bread to the hollandaise sauce. As much as I tried it’s really perfect for four. It’s also a time sensitive dish to make given that everything needs to be prepped and cooked at the same time. Fortunately for me, Joe volunteered to help out and together we had everything prepared and assembled in no time. When you taste that first bite, your taste buds will swoon. This is by far my favorite hollandaise sauce, so creamy and flavorful with freshly roasted green chile. And if you take the time to make these light and airy fry breads, you will wonder why you haven’t done this sooner. At least that’s what I’m thinking!

I hope you all had a joyous holiday season! I loved the holidays but at the same time glad to start a new year and get back into my routine. After so many holiday treats and birthday sweets we were due for something more basic like a good breakfast. I recently came across a new product for poaching the perfect eggs at Sur la table. And honestly, since I’m not very good at poaching eggs, I was happy to give these little poaching bags a try. So I had a plan for some Eggs Benedict but I needed something else to round out the meal so I fried up some Colorado Hash Browns which are crisp and pan fried potatoes with some onion, red chile flakes and spices. What a great meal to start off the New Year!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there. If I could choose this would be my favorite breakfast to wake up to on Mother’s day. Eggs Benedict with a hint of chipotle. I wanted to make these as easy as possible so I took a page out of “Simply Recipes” blog and made the hollandaise in a blender which turned out great. She also gives instructions on poaching eggs which proved to be helpful as I have not had great experience in the past with the poaching process. I chose a sourdough english muffin with smokey bacon instead of the traditional canadian bacon and topped it with spinach leaves and sliced avocado before adding a poached egg and chipotle hollandaise sauce.
