Creole Eggplant Eggs Benedict

  • Makes: 4 servings
  • Serving Size: 2 eggplant slices, one poached egg, 1/2 cup Creole sauce, and 1 tablespoon “hollandaise” topper
  • Carb Grams Per Serving: 20

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 5 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 14 1/2 – ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • 8 1/2-inch-thick slices peeled eggplant (2-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • Paprika or ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. For Creole sauce,* in a medium saucepan cook onion, celery, and garlic in 1 teaspoon of the olive oil until tender. Add tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, thyme, and cayenne pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in the fresh parsley.
  2. In a shallow dish combine panko, the dried parsley, garlic powder, paprika, the 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and the salt. Place egg product in another shallow dish.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet heat 2 teaspoons of the remaining olive oil. Dip each eggplant slice in the egg, then dip in the crumb mixture to lightly coat. Add half of the eggplant slices to the hot oil; cook for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown and tender (if eggplant browns too quickly, reduce heat slightly), turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer eggplant slices to a foil-lined baking sheet; place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil and the remaining eggplant slices.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet bring 1 inch water to boiling; reduce heat to simmering (bubbles should begin to break the surface of the water). Break an egg into a cup and slip egg into the simmering water. Repeat with the remaining eggs, allowing each egg an equal amount of space in the water. Simmer eggs, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs from water.
  5. To make “hollandaise” topper,** in a small bowl stir together Greek yogurt, lime juice, mustard, and the white pepper.
  6. For each serving, place an eggplant slice on a plate; top with 1/4 cup of the Creole sauce, one poached egg, another eggplant slice, another 1/4 cup of the Creole sauce, and about 1 tablespoon of the “hollandaise” topper. If desired, sprinkle with paprika or black pepper.
