Broiled Salmon Benedict with Smoked Cheese
High Protein Easy Dinner Recipe
This protein-packed dinner has all your food groups in one meal. It’s eggs benedict at suppertime. The smoked cheese takes the place of a hollandaise sauce and gives these little gems a more flavorful taste as well as cutting down your preparation time. For a softer egg, allow them to simmer in the water just until the whites are cooked through.
• 1 tsp. white vinegar
• 8 large eggs
• 4 English muffins, split and toasted
• 2 C cooked smoked salmon, broken into pieces
• 8 slices smoked cheese
Allow the broiler to preheat and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Fill a saucepan with 3 inches of water and place over medium-high heat. When the water comes to a gentle boil, add the vinegar. Break the eggs into the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes or until fully poached. Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs and drain on a paper towel.
Place the English muffins on the prepared baking sheet. Top each half with salmon. Lay a poached egg on top of each muffin half. Place the cheese slices over the eggs. Broil the salmon for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Makes 4 servings.
