Healthy 3 Minute Eggs Benedict

I love when I am able to sit down for a breakfast before work, even if I only have 10 minutes before I have to leave, I crave this chill time. This breakfast keeps me going all day. I would eat this after a run (definitely not pre-run food) or just before I crank out 8 hours of PE with my elementary kids. I justify calling this “benedict” because when I break open the yoke it makes a “sauce.” The lemon zest give this great flavor without the guilt from butter and hollandaise sauce. This breakfast is so fast you will be amazed!
What you will need:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 whole wheat/whole grain english muffin
  • slice of ham (if you want, I didn’t add it, I like the spinach better)
  • handful of spinach leaves
  • salt, pepper, lemon to zest
  • poached eggs lesson
Poached Eggs in the Mircowave 101:
  • Start with a small custard dish, mug, or microwave safe bowl. I love my 4 oz CorningWare bowl because the egg holds a perfect shape for the benedict.
  • Fill the bowl 3/4th of the way or 1/2 of the way in a mug
  • Crack 1 egg into the bowl, be careful to not crack the yoke.
  • Most Important*** Cover the bowl with a lid or plate (plastic wrap is a serious fail, trust me). Stay near your microwave, it might pop.
  • Microwave for 1 minute
  • Repeat this process to for the 2 eggs for the 2 slices of english muffin like I did in the picture if you want
  • Toast the english muffin and grab a handful of spinach while the eggs are cooking
The 3 Minutes:
  1. Poached Eggs 1 minute
  2. Poached Eggs 1 minute
  3. Toast english muffins, spinach, salt/pepper, zest lemon
