Step aside English muffins, there’s a new vehicle in town for eggs benedict. Next time you make eggs benedict, why not serve them in a tortilla for breakfast tacos!?
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
I can’t believe today is the start of the fifth #BrunchWeek! I’ve been participating in this event almost as long as I’ve been blogging (will be 7 years in November) and it’s definitely one of my favorite blogging events. The only downfall is that it’s all digital and we are not sharing all of these creations in person! What an epic brunch that would be if we could all be together, sharing our brunch recipes. Instead I will be drooling over my keyboard all week long. Feel free to join me. We’ve also got an incredible giveaway going on that you should probably enter. Find out more HERE.
When it comes to breakfast or brunch, eggs benedict is one of my go tos, which should be pretty obvious because it wasn’t that long ago that I shared a recipe for an eggs benedict casserole. With Cinco de Mayo recently, I still have tacos on the brain and decided to serve this classic in a tortilla instead of an English muffin. And then I added some Michigan Asparagus and Cabot Vermont sharp cheddar into the hollandaise sauce. Best idea ever!

EGGS BENEDICT BREAKFAST TACOS
16 Michigan Asparagus spears, trimmed
1 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 tsp vinegar
4 eggs, cracked and placed in individual ramekins
4 corn or flour tortillas
4 oz. Canadian bacon, sliced and warmed
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp Dixie Crystals pure cane sugar
Dash hot Tabasco sauce
2 Tbsp shredded Cabot Vermont sharp cheddar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with foil and spread asparagus in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile prepare the hollandaise. In the top of a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the hollandaise ingredients (except the cheddar). Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 6 to 8 minutes. In last minute, whisk in the cheddar cheese and whisk until melted through. Set aside.
- Fill a wide sauce or saute pan with two inches of water. Bring to a gentle simmer and add vinegar. Gently pour eggs into the pan. Cook 3 minutes, then remove carefully with a slotted spoon and let drain.
