Eggs Benedict with a Twist

I’ve found yet another convenient and tasty use for my Shawarma Mayo Salad Dressing.  The versatility of this mayo/dressing just continues to astound me!  Despite the fact that all attempts to incorporate cauliflower into omelets and quiches have heretofore proven to be pretty awful in my opinion, THIS experiment was absolutely delicious!!  I had a large amount of steamed, buttered cauliflower leftover from dinner last night and wanted to try this homemade dressing on it, but adding some egg today as well, something similar to my Eggs with Tarragon Sauce recipe we adore.  Well, it came out JUST as good as THAT recipe!  I think I’ll even have this sauce atop cauliflower as a vegetable side dish, without the egg sometime as well!!  Nice flavor combination!  This extremely nutritious breakfast or lunch is suitable for Atkins Induction, Keto diets and my Primal/Paleo readers as well.

  1. Dairy was hard to give up, especially in my coffee. After using a coconut milk concoction for over one year, I finally started drinking my coffee black in January. The final step for me was giving up my nightly glass of wine. I was really hoping that it wouldn’t come to that, but it did. 🙂 A Whole30 is a great way to find out what works, and I think Primal is a great place to be – if dairy works for you. Sounds like you don’t make decisions lightly Peggy, so I have a feeling you’ll do just fine. Days 4-7 seem to be the hardest for most people, so schedule naps if possible! 🙂

    1. Yes, I finally decided to take the plunge and do what I’ve been contemplating over a year. Didn’t know if I could give up my dairy, especially cheese and cream. I may end up just going Primal. Bet hey, it’s a start. 🙂 wish me luck. DAY 2 today. No problems yet.
