Muir’s Tea Room (a gluten-free treasure tucked in the heart of Sebastopol)

Good Morning With Eggs Benedict

Good Morning With Eggs Benedict

I am constantly scouring the globe for the best Eggs Benedict. I have no idea if I prefer it with ham, smoked salmon, tomato and spinach or pork belly. They all are scrumptious to me!

Once I went gluten-free though, I realized it was a bit of a landmine. Although hollandaise sauce isn’t traditionally made with flour, you’ll find plenty of restaurants that use flour in the sauce…so it’s not as easy as putting it on a gluten-free bread or crumpet. The sauce has to be checked too!

If you’re craving some eggs benny and you want to save yourself the headache of waiting til you find a “safe” one at a restaurant, I recommend my down and dirty recipe for eggs benedict. I’m lazy so I don’t poach the eggs (I fry them) but here’s a link to a great video by my boyfriend (so I say), Jamie Oliver, if you want to make the perfect poached eggs for it.
