Tomato Head’s Knox Benedict

Mahasti’s interpretation of this classic brunch dish is perfect for the upcoming Christmas holiday. Think about preparing the biscuits, country hollandaise sauce, and breakfast sausage a day in advance so you can spend more time with your family on Christmas morning opening presents. Mahasti used sausage from Riverplains Farm in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee.

For the Country Hollandaise

1 cup Mayonnaise

1 Tbl + 2 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice

2 tsp Cider Vinegar

With a whisk, mix all ingredients together in a small bowl, until smooth.

For the Knox Benedict:

4 Biscuits, Baked (can be baked a day ahead)

4 Eggs, Scrambled

Breakfast Sausage

Monterey Jack Cheese, Shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut biscuits in half and place the biscuits on a cookie sheet. Top each half with some of the scrambled eggs, followed by some breakfast sausage, and cheese. Top with about 1 tablespoon of “Mock Hollandaise.” Place the topped biscuits in the preheated oven and bake for 13 – 15 minutes or until hot. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
