For the Skyr Hollandaise Sauce

  • 1 (5.3) ounce container plain skyr, such as Icelandic Provisions
  • Half lemon, juiced
  • 3/4 Teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt

For the Eggs Benedict

  • 4 Large eggs
  • 2 Whole grain English muffins, sliced in half
  • 1/2 Cup bay spinach
  • 4 Tomato slices
  • 2 Ounces smoked salmon
  • 1 Tablespoon dill, chopped


For the Skyr Hollandaise Sauce

In a small bowl, add Icelandic Provisions plain skyr, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, turmeric, paprika, and sea salt. Whisk together until emulsified. Set aside.

For the Eggs Benedict

Break 1 egg into a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. tip the strainer around to help separate the thins parts of the egg white from the thick part of the egg white. Tap the strainer against the side of the bowl to allow the thinner part of the egg white to fall through. The thick part of the egg white and the egg yolk will remain. Pour the egg into a ramekin and set aside. Toss the thinner egg white from the bowl. Repeat with each egg.

In a medium size saucepan, bring 4 inches of water to a boil. When the water reaches a boil, turn off the heat and slide each egg, one at a time into the water.

To Assemble:

Let them cook until egg whites are slightly firm about 2-3 minutes. Egg yolk will be runny.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs. Place them on a clean plate and set aside.

Toast the English muffins (For best timing toast once eggs are being poached.)

Place the spinach, a tomato slice, 1/4 of the smoked salmon and a poached egg on one half of the English muffin.

Pour 1/4 of the skyr mixture over each egg, and sprinkle some dill on top before serving.

Repeat the process for the other three halves English muffins, and serve immediately.
