Steamed Red Fingerling Potato Eggs Benedict
Created on 09/14/11

2 Large Red Fingerling Potatoes, scrubbed clean and sliced 1/8” thick

4 eggs

2 medium tomatoes (you should get eight slices from the two tomatoes)

1 Avocado sliced (you should get four slices of Avocado per half)

½ cup sour cream

1 medium lime

1 tablespoon of fresh or dried dill (add more if you like the flavor of dill)

Salt / Pepper to taste

Place the sour cream in a bowl and squeeze the juice of one lime into the bowl. Add the dill and cracked pepper. Mix ingredients well, and set aside.

In a stock pot lined with a steamer, fill with approximately 3” of water. Slice the scrubbed potatoes 1/8” thick and lay in the steamer the sliced potatoes. Turn on burner to high heat to heat up the water so that the potatoes can steam cook. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender about 10 minutes; cooking time can be less depends on your stove. Season the potatoes lightly with salt.

In a 10” pan, fill up with water till about 1-1/2 inches from the top. Bring to a hard boil and then reduce the heat until the water is just simmering. In the pan with simmering water, add one teaspoon of vinegar. The vinegar will help keep each egg together (congeal) and not spread in the water. Cook the eggs in simmering water for approximately 4 to 5 minutes and remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel to collect any excess water from the egg. Remember, you can cook the eggs longer to your preference but you will want to have some yolk to flavor the dish.

Slice the tomatoes. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Remove the avocado meat from the skin and slice.

To Assemble:

On a plate, place the steamed potatoes in a circular pattern. Lay four slices of avocado on top of potatoes, then four slices of tomato on top of the avocado. Spoon the sour cream mixture on top of the tomato slices and place two poached eggs on top of the sour cream. Season the poached eggs with salt and cracked pepper. Enjoy!
